While driving around the other day, we spotted a somewhat creepy, somewhat surreal, but nonetheless beautiful sight.  Several large trees loaded with bats.  These bats were huge.  They are a local fruit bat.  Many indigenous folks hunt and eat the bat.   Regardless, you don’t see this in the States.

    Well I sure don’t get ‘local fruit bats’ where I live, but I’ve always loved them. The little Brown bats up where I live are awesome insectivores! Thanks for this excellent reblog Linda. Cool info on a really cool animal. Cheers, Gina
