Etruscan Shrews may be the most ferocious. They have a bite like a cobra and eat twice their own weight in meat every day. Also, They attack an animal over three times it's size.

Do vampire bats have sonar?

No. SONAR (SOund Navigation And Ranging) is an acronym for a human technology that used for underwater navigation. Bats have the ability that may be similar to SONAR, but they do not use a machine and do not use it under water. They use their ultra sensitive hearing and brain processing to "see" in the dark with sound waves, sort of like how we see with light waves.
