Thanks Cindy. Nor too many people are fond of bats, but they really are fascinating animals found on almost every continent on earth :-)

Ha! I've always had a fondness for bats although I've never had the pleasure of caring for one or meeting one in the wild! Great Work you do both with the photography and the rehab work!

@ EmilyMarino - This was one of two Yellow-bellied Sheathtails in care at the bat hospital. Never thought of it as cute! One was super aggressive, the other (female I think) was very calm.
