  1. i've never read the book, so take this all with a grain of salt. but my understanding of the quote is that the writer is playing with the idea that bats diverged evolutionarily from some group containing insectivores and humans, or diverged from insectivores before humans did, something along those lines. i'm no biologist but according to my amateur reading of a phylogenetic tree i googled, bats (order chiroptera) diverged from a larger category including both humans (primates) and order rodentia (insectivores). (some bats are also insectivores apparently, but they're more genetically distant from humans than some of their fellow insectivores.) anyway, the statement seems more or less factually correct. shareit app vidmate apk
