Legenda:

Proverbia:

Fontes:

[12.7.36] Vespertilio pro tempore nomen accepit, eo quod lucem fugiens crepusculo vespertino circumvolet praecipiti motu acta, et tenuissimis brachiorum membris suspensa; animal murium simile, non tam voce resonans quam stridore; specie quoque volatilis simul et quadrupes, quod in aliis avibus reperiri non solet.
