Bats symbolize death and rebirth. They are largely misunderstood and so, therefore, many symbolic meanings are inappropriately fear-based. From the womb-like caves, they emerge every evening at dusk hence; rebirth. The bat is also a symbol of communication because the Native Americans observed the bat to be a highly social creature. They are very nurturing, exhibiting verbal communication, touching, and sensitivity to members of their group.
Much folklore around the world has cast the bat in a bad role. Curiously, the old European association of bats to vampires occurred long before Europeans discovered the existence of the less common species of vampire bats in South America (the only continent where vampire bats are found). Bats are not always portrayed as evil in world mythologies. In Chinese folklore, for example, bats are a symbol of good fortune and luck.
