There isn't another mammal that can fly (gliding isn't flying); thus, making the bat the most unique... right?

Yabut, there's only one mammal that lays eggs and has a duck bill. Checkmate, Calvinist!

I should have clarified I'm not talking about appearance.

This is probably cheating, but Homo sapiens has the brainpower and manual dexterity to do all kinds of things no other mammal can dream of.

Some animals have unique speed capabilities. Cheetah's can hit 75 mph. A Peregrine falcon can dive at over 200 mph.

There's other flying mammals (squirrel -- they don't fly well, but do) - and dolphins and porpoises have echo location....


If you want unique -- a platypus gets the vote.

Find another mammal that lays eggs......

I really like those moose lambs I have been hearing about a lot lately.

Humans obviously.
Yes bats can fly, but so can we with the right technology. Brain power has allowed us to become an overwhelming dominate force on this planet.
There's simply no other animal in history that has done what we've done.
