The rainforests are home to small bats. The vast majority of them are microbats, which are smaller bat species. However, sea levels will rise in the distant future, say 1000 years, consuming coastal rainforests or even those that are already partially submerged in water, such as the Amazon. Bats will grow in size as they evolve. They'll travel long distances with a 6 to 7-foot wingspan to glide because, as sea levels rise, the bats will need to find a place to rest and find food after their habitat is consumed by the water. Scavengers, the bats will eat whatever they can find on the coasts of what was once their rainforest habitat. They will also learn to eat small fish as their normal food becomes scarce, and they will evolve into a more marine-based creature, possibly with the ability to dive underwater or swim to hunt.
