Bat Info: very, very informative - A MUST READ!!

Did you know this about bats??  A newsletter from, "The Texas Gardener" said:

Put up a bat house to encourage the presence of these shy animals. Bats consume 3,000 or more mosquitoes and  other insects nightly, and bats are less likely to be rabid than dogs are.

Need another reason? Bats are responsible for up to 95percent of the seed dispersal essential
 to the regeneration of forests.

Our planet is populated with plenty of bizarre and astonishing creatures.

Here are three specimens from the Bat Family.


Sucker-footed Bat


Red-Winged Fruit Bat


Left-Winged Ding Bat
So 2 out of these 3 Bats have a useful purpose!
Maybe if we could just train the last one to eat mosquitoes.........
