Personally, I find bats charming and adorable (fruit bats more so). My grandmother is terrified of them (courtesy of a superstitious Irish auntie who told her that bats get tangled in your hair and then beat you to death with their wings), and once nearly flipped a boat in Penns Cave after her partner Bob fluttered his hand on her hair in the dark.
Wellington Zoo has an awesome enclosure of little flying foxes. I caught them at feeding time once, it was so cool to see them upside down, scuffling and arguing over bits of fruit. I even made a print about bats that ended up in my Senior Show, but I’m not showing you because I’m still not happy with how it turned out. I plan on revisiting the bats; when I do, you’ll be the first to see (well, maybe second). In the meantime, here are other people’s bats to delight and amuse you!
