The word "Fledermaus" is a German noun that translates to "bat" in English. It is composed of two parts: "Fleder", which means "fluttering" or "flitting", and "Maus", which means "mouse". Therefore, the literal translation of Fledermaus is "fluttering mouse".

In German, Fledermaus refers specifically to the order Chiroptera, which includes all species of bats. Bats are mammals that belong to the same group as humans, known as placental mammals. They are characterized by their ability to fly using elongated fingers covered by a thin membrane of skin called wings.

Bats play important roles in ecosystems as pollinators, seed dispersers, and insect controllers. They are found worldwide, except in extreme desert and polar regions. There are over 1,400 species of bats, making them the second largest order of mammals after rodents.
