People find bats creepy and scary but I think they are miss understood and I would love to have bats on my property. I've always enjoyed watching them fly around looking for a tasty meal.

The Malaysian Flying Fox (Pteropus vampyrus), is a southeast Asian species of megabat in the family Pteropodidae. Like the other members of the genus Pteropus, or the Old World fruit bats, it feeds exclusively on fruits, nectar and flowers. It is noted for being one of the largest bats and as with all other Old World fruit bats, lacks the ability to echolocate. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large_flying_fox #Bat #Malaysian_Flying_Fox

One morning there was a dead bat in our pool. A few nights later my husband was netting the pool out while one was swooping down catching bugs. It hit the water and was unable to recover flight. Gary lifted it with the net and the second it was free of the water it took off. I guess that one warned the others because we've had no more bats in the pool. ~ Flying Fox | BATs - Mega and Micro
