Columbus Zoo Week – Bats

I think these are Fox Bats.  Fox or whatever kind they are they are some very very big bats!  As large as they were I expected at any moment for one of them to unwrap it’s wings and give me a good Bela Lugosi Dracula “Good Evening”.  Poor things, I wonder if they ever get to fly around in the zoo.

    I remember one year finding a bat hiding or sleeping in our patio umbrella, it was just a baby but he got water hosed anyway!

    I agree that something is not right with bats hanging in daylight! My father-in-law once had a bat fly into his hotel room while on vacation in upstate New York. From all accounts, he screamed like a little girl ( no disrespect to little girls).

    Flying foxes are huge! I saw them in Australia and couldn’t believe their size. Here, bats are about the size of small sparrows.
