    Another Creature of the Night

    Nocturnal, like me. Plus they eat mosquitos - my nemisis. I like nearly everything about bats. They live in caves, which I have always loved, and they use echolocation! How cool is that! I hit a bat in my car once, it must not have been listening where it was going...

    Stood In Swarm of Bats

    I love bats, and have absolute confidence in them that they will never accidently bump into me.  I had walked out the side door of my house one night at dusk, and thought I saw a bird..., only it was too late, too dark, and too quite for birds.  I then focused...

    I just hung out with a bat.

    An incredible experience. I was sitting in my yard, drinking a beer, looking at the night sky, trying to identify the stars above me, contemplating life... A bat arrived. The mosquitoes are finally going away as we head into Fall. I see them in the summer, swooping around in...

    I Love Bats!

    Bats are my favorite animal! No one really appreciates what they do for the environment. They are so interesting and I think they're cute! I love them so much I have 18 of them tattooed on my arm. My mom hates it but it's my favorite tattoo!

    Swirling In Midair

    Bats are the most acrobatic flyers of the sky. I have no fear that they will attack me with their precision somersault and gliding across the nighttime sky.

    Bats Are Cool!

    Bats are one of the most fascinating creatures on this earth. The Livingstone's Fruit Bat is my favorite. I love to watch documentaries where we watch how social they are and bat mommas with their babies.

    Here on the farm we have bats, hundreds of them. I've never been afraid of them, I think they are lovely creatures. We occassionally have one fly into the house and all rush to "save" them, because the cats are amazingly agile and manage to catch them with ease! It gets me...

    Night Creatures

    I used to work deep nights and I loved the little bats that always seemed to be hovering around in the warmer months. Even though it seemed the rest of the world was asleep; I always knew that there were other creatures working beside me.  I liked to joke that I...

    Interesting Animals

    The first time I saw a bat was in elementary school. It was during recess. There was an old tree that sat along the edge of the soccer field. Someone spotted the bat clinging on to the trunk. It was small and black with pointy ears. It looked completely harmless. My class and I...

    Welcome In My Yard

    The past few weeks I've seen fluttering, flapping shapes darting above my backyard.  No bird that I've ever seen flies that way, so I have to conclude that they are bats.Cool!  Aside from the whole flying mammal thing (which is cool in and of itself), bats eat bugs...and bugs...

    Something Different

    I Wish I Could See A Real One

    I usually seeing bats in my country but they fly too fast and they don't land in places where i can see them. Bats are one of my favorite animals besides dogs and small parrot type of birds (lovebirds, parakeets, etc.)

    A bat got trapped in my boyfriends room.

    Poor thing was so scared. Kept flapping around like mad. My boyfriend finally got it to fly out the window. I really like bats. I think they're cool creatures. They eat bugs and they're cute. I'm glad the little guy got outside. :)

    I used to be so terrified of bats.

    But recently I found a baby bat in my pool. I decided to take care of it because it couldn't fly. I'm pretty sure it was injured. I love animals very much and it breaks my heart to see a living thing injured or hurt and in pain. I'm so happy I saved it. It feels good to save a...

    Seychelles Flying Fox

    I was fortunate enough to holiday in the Seychelles - something everyone should have on their Bucket List by the way - it is said to be The Garden of Eden - the ORIGINAL one, and I believe it! We went to visit a flock of these special, Megabats. They are rather fierce looking...

    My Favorite Bat

    Just one, actually.  I loved Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, two of my favorite movies.  There is something very crisp and tidy about the identity crisis Bruce Wayne goes through as Batman.  It has a definitive start, middle and end, though he never achieves the...
