Cryogenic treatment (deep tempering) for motor sports, firearms, softball bats, golf clubs, and musical instruments. In Decatur, IL.
300 Below/CryoTech is the founder of commercial cryogenic processing since 1966. Ed Busch is our chairman emeritus. Currently, 300 Below processes in excess of a million pounds of steel and components per year. 300 Below is responsible for establishing 153 operations which extend into 36 countries, all using 300 Below Cryo-processors. Even the industry foundation research, by Dr. Randall Barron, was funded by our company. We solicit your inquiry and look forward to solving your Cryo-processing needs. "No. Cryogenically Treated parts are never used in my racing team ...Would I lie?" And if you believe that, I have an unrestored, one-owner, fuel-injected '63 Corvette split-window with only 500 miles. The point I am trying to make is, major motorsports teams ARE using cryogenics, but there's no way they will give away their secret. The best way to make that point is to list a few of our many successes: A Mitsubishi Eclipse Import Dragracer increased the life of his axle/cv-joints from 6 passes to 41 passes following Cryogenic Treatment.

Seeing with Sound

To the Bat Cave!
... Shop or Compare Prices Bats really stand out in the animal world. They are the only mammals that can fly, and they live much of their lives hanging upside down. Most species are only active at night, dusk and dawn, spending their days in dark caves. Many bats have developed adaptations that let them find their way (and their prey) in complete darkness. Bats are also well-known for sucking blood, though in actuality, there are only a few specific species that feed this way. Photo courtesy Georgia Museum of Natural History The Seminole bat is one of the many bat species native to the United States. Seminole bats live mostly in the woods, where they hunt flies, beetles and crickets, among other insects. In cultures all over the world, these peculiar qualities have captured the imagination of storytellers and their audiences, who have attributed mysterious, supernatural qualities to the animals. Unfortunately, these tales have given bats a notorious, sinister reputation, while in actuality, most bat species are harmless. In this edition of

BATS in South American Folklore and Ancient Art
by Elizabeth P. Benson South America is a land of contrasts. Across the equator, the Andes raise snow-covered, volcanic peaks that reach heights of 23,000 feet. The eastern slopes descend into the Amazon Basin, the world's largestand one of the most lushtropical forests. To the west, the foothills give way to the driest coastal desert in the world and to the cold, deep waters of the Pacific Ocean. The diversity of South American bats is as impressive and varied as the landscape. In its lowland forests, there are more bats, and more bat species, than in any other part of the world. The range of some of the more "interesting" species overlies, in rough outline, that of the cultures who attained the highest achievements in the New World before the arrival of Columbus. Ancient peoples found bats fascinating, and these animals are a significant motif in many styles of Pre-Columbian art and a frequent theme in Indian folklore. A Toba story from the Gran Chaco region of northern Argentina tells of the leader of the very first peoplea hero bat or bat-man who taught people all they needed to know as human beings. And from the Ge in Brazil comes a tale of a tribe that moved through the night led by a bat who looked for light toward which to guide them.

Back to Kids Page Batty About Bats
Bats are flying mammals that navigate by sound (echolocation). They emit sounds which bounce back as echoes. An echo can tell a bat where an insect or any other object is located. Beneficial Bats
  • Bats are important predators of night-flying insects. Many tropical bats pollinate plants and help spread seeds. Bat droppings, or guano, can be used as fertilizer.

Anatomy of a Bat
True or False? Bats are blind. Bats get into your hair. All bats have rabies. Go to Answers Answers to True or False: All are False. And, all are some of the greatest myths about bats. Most bats can see well, but rely more on sound than sight. Because a bat can find something as small as a tiny insect, it can certainly detect something as large as your hair and avoid it. Like all mammals, bats can get rabies, but only a few do. Unlike many other mammals, bats with rabies seldom become aggressive.

Bats are among the most important yet underrated animals in the world. Despite the fact that almost a quarter of all known mammal species are bats, most people know very little about them. Bats are vital for pollination, seed-dispersal and insect control, but are being killed indiscriminately or chased out of the few safe habitats left to them, because of misinformation and ignorance. Here in San Diego County we are fortunate to have 22 species (and several sub-species) of bats in residence. Below is a partial list of our nocturnal neighbors.

Night fliers
Small and furry, bats are the only mammals to have achieved powered flight. Their arms are spindly, with membranes stretched between the fingers on each hand. This arrangement makes their wings quite different from those of birds and pterosaurs , and in fact the bats have evolved flight quite independently. Most bats also differ from other flying animals in their reliance on hearing for navigation. While birds have large eyes and keen sight, many bats have a poor sense of vision, and must rely on hearing sonar echos to find their way around. This might make bats easy prey for strong fliers with keen sight, but they get around this problem because they are nocturnal , coming out at night, or by living in tropical forests, where the light is dim and the obstacles are many. Despite their resemblance to rodents , bats are not closely related to mice at all. Though their exact placement is still uncertain, there is recent evidence that they may be more closely related to the primates . Whatever their relationships, bats are among the most successful groups of mammals: there are nearly 1,000 species of bats around the world, making up about one quarter of all mammal species.

93. Fossil Record Of The Chiroptera
The UMCP webpage on fossil bats
Chiroptera: Fossil Record
Although bats are one of the most diverse groups of mammals today, they are one of the least common groups in the fossil record. Bats have small, light skeletons that do not preserve well. Also, many live in tropical forests, where conditions are usually unfavorable for the formation of fossils. Thus we know little about the early evolution of bats. Some mammal teeth from the Paleocene of France show characters of both bats and insectivores (the group including the hedgehogs, shrews and moles of today). However, since these fossils are only teeth, we don't know what the rest of the animal was like. The next bat fossils start turning up in the Eocene , in sites with unusually complete preservation of whole skeletons, such as the Green River Formation of Wyoming and the Messel Shale of Germany. These fossils represent essentially modern-looking microchiropterans; bats had evolved all of their characteristic features and begun to diversify by this time. In fact, the oldest known complete fossil bat, the Eocene-age Icaronycteris shown at right, shows specializations of the auditory region of the skull that suggest that this bat could echolocate.

Bats in the Classroom: Activities Across the Curriculum
October the perfect time to work bats into the curriculum, to teach about some of the misconceptions often held about these interesting creatures of nature. Why have hundreds of people gathered by the Congress Avenue Bridge in downtown Austin, Texas? Each night, from mid-March until early November, people gather to view one of nature's most spectacular sights. On a summer evening, spectators near the bridge might see a million or more bats "spiralling into the sunset." The bats are hungry for insects, and evening when large numbers of insects are out is dinnertime for bats! But it wasn't always that way! The bats in this case, Mexican free-tail bats didn't appear in such large numbers until after the bridge was reconstructed in 1980. The reconstruction had created new crevices beneath the bridge that, as it turned out, were ideal places for bat roosting. Soon bats began moving in by the hundreds of thousands! As the bat colony grew, many Austin-area residents reacted with fear. They signed petitions hoping to have the bats eradicated.

Washington, DC
Tel: 202-682-9400
Fax: 202-682-1331 STATUS: Thirteen species of bat are listed as endangered. DESCRIPTION: Bats are the only mammals capable of true flight. The bat's wing anatomically resembles the human hand, with extremely elongated fingers and a wing membrane stretched between. Almost 1,000 bat species can be found worldwide. In fact, bats make up a quarter of all mammal species on Earth! SIZE: Bats are divided into two suborders: Megachiroptera, meaning large bat, and Microchiroptera, meaning small bat. The largest bats have a 6 foot wing span. The bodies of the smallest bats are no more than an inch long. POPULATION: While some bat populations number in the millions, others are dangerously low or in decline. LIFESPAN: Most bats live longer than most mammals of their size. The longest known lifespan of a bat in the wild is 30 years for a little brown bat. RANGE: Bats can be found almost anywhere in the world except the polar regions and extreme deserts. HABITAT: Bats find shelter in caves, crevices, tree cavities, and buildings.
