About Bats..............

I think Bats are highly misunderstood.....
Bats are mammals, and suckle their young...just like we do. Most bats are shy and mild. They are not blind, and mean; they do not fly into people's faces, and entangle their hair.
They do not fasten themselves to people's necks and suck blood. Only a very very tiny number of them get rabies....Some bats in South America pollinate flowering trees; others who eat fruit disperse seeds throughout the rain forest. About 70% of all bat species have an enormous appetite for insects (including such pests as mosquitoes).
Learning about bats will give you a wonderful sense of relief from fear, and release from ignorance. One can even learn to love and admire them.....

Our house is right across the street (literally) from a canyon where lots of bats and coyotes live. In the summers, especially, the bats all come flying out at dusk...the kids love to lay down on the driveway and watch them fly over! It really is pretty cool to watch!
