I'm very good at trivia. And it's because I spend most of my waking hours working or researching nonsense. Like this.

So how exactly do bats hang upside down? Interestingly, once the bat has found a spot to hang, it uses its muscles to pull its claws open and then relaxes its body to hold on to the surface. The weight of the upper body of the bat forces the tendons connected to the talons to clench. That essentially means that the bat does not have to do anything to hang! It just has to exert energy to get a grip on a surface. If a bat dies while roosting it actually carries on to hang there! The bats continue to rest in peace until something comes along and jostle it loose.
