Is bat immunity caused by keratin structures?
Do the larger than normal external keratin based structures of bats (ie large wings plus fur) account for the bats greater ability to eliminate toxins and therefore assist to create greater immunity?
Bats' body temperatures are higher than humans. Their natural body temperature is like they have a fever. This makes them able to fight off diseases quickly. The large wings and fur might also help too, but I don't know.
Thanks for that fact.
Would it be wrong of me to direct you to my hub on biological mysteries?
Every time I observe odd things happening regarding immunity it seems keratin is connected.
I would read that hub, just post a link in your next comment.
