Iman: Momma, all birds lay eggs-

Me: That’s right, very good…

Iman: -except for tigers.

Me: Iman, tigers are not birds.

Iman: What about bats?

Me: No, they’re not birds even though they fly.  They don’t have feathers.  They’re kind of like flying mice.

Iman: But they’re not alive, right?

Me: Of course bats are alive!

Iman: Oh yes, in the rainforest.
