Fact of the Day: Bat World

Bats are found across most of the world. The only places where they don't live are the polar regions and some deserts.

  1. Don't care for bats. We had bats on our trip in various places, hanging upside down looking at us..

  2. And they STINK to the high heavens.
    Filthy creatures. Go to a bat cave or a colony but watch out for dropping shit and saliva.
    Yuck Yuck Yuck.

  5. Bats kinda freak me out IRL, but I do think they're such fascinating creatures (and I secretly hope they turn into vampires at night....bwahaha)

  8. Found out a few years ago we even have some here. Never would have thought so until a bat started flying around in the movie theater and freaked everyone the hell out.

      I can only assume and that rather with great sceptism that the Bats
      and flying foxes of Ontario, Canada, bathe in cologne, wear nappies
      and suffer acute laryngitis. Or you have lost your sense of smell,
      because all bats and flying foxes here in Australia, and in the US states
      of Minnesota and Georgia - just to name two US States, and the bats
      of all countries in S E Asia, Japan and in Europe - STINK and are
      as Stephen Hayes has succinctly reported are: "FLYING RATS'.

    2. That is your view; mine is different. Bats are extremely beneficial. They consume hugs amounts of insects such as mosquitoes and crop damaging insects every night. Many of them feed on nectar and pollen making them important pollinators.

  10. There is a bat cave nearby. We went once, and those bats were everywhere. Scared the crap out of me.

  11. Flying rats! But I guess they serve a purpose.

  12. As much as I'm not particularly fond of bats, I won't be moving to one of the poles to avoid them. Frigid weather is scarier than any bat. Our occasionally -33 or -34 F weather here in Iowa is bad enough!

  13. I have seen them fly out from under a bridge in Austin, Texas and from the caves at Carlsbad Caverns....it is so cool and super awesome to see so many flying. I've never been close enuf to smell them, I guess.
