A bat.[1]

A Bat was a fearsome flying mammal from Earth. Bats were often thought of as mice with wings, although in actuality, Bats were not mice or even rodents at all.

When Bruce Wayne was alone, sitting in his study in Wayne Manor, a bat flew through the window. It was a startling sight, and Bruce took it as an omen. He used the image of these amazing creatures for his Batman costume to "strike terror into the hearts" of criminals, who in general were a superstitious, "cowardly lot."[2]

Marvin White, Wendy Harris and Wonder Dog were frightened by the sudden appearance of a black bat in Bottomless Cave, so much so that they took off running and lost their trail.[3]
