You dont see this every day
Tune in tomorrow — same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!
This has been discussed in the DL forum in a thread started by Horse more than three and a half days ago. Please request that this thread be merged into that one.
For us inferior non-DL types, I think I'll leave it here for non DL people who may want to see it.
*Eek*! Had one of those in my house not too long ago. Just creepy! Caught him with a towel and out the front door he went!
never had that close of an encounter!! we have them come out at dusk over our pond and they feast on the mosquitoes. Fun to watch their erratic flight patterns.
Yes +1 was totally nonplussed about it. Not me - I was a little freaked out. What was strange was the little chirruping noises it made as I had it wrapped in the towel.
apparently they taste good though. Next time try the frying pan!
I caught one in the house in a spare bedroom. The little guy really sounded mad under the towel I smacked him with, so I just closed up the room to get him out the next day. But the next day he was gone.
I have had to dodge plenty of bats while fishing in the Merced River in Yosemite after the sun passed over the rim. They would also come out over the water looking for mosquitoes and other tasty bugs. If there was a large hatch of them, it was just best to get out of the water before dusk or you spent most of your time dodging bats and catching no fish.
That was a bat, not bird? They never found the bat in the lavatory afterward, right? At least according to the news I heard the other day. Where did it go?
About 60% to 70% of bats in the States are regulars under the Congress Bridge in Austin, TX. Bat-watching is popular there in the summer and brings in tons of tourists too.
They do smell, if you get too close to their habitat.
I think it's sad people were swatting at it. I had two of them get in the house once - they are harmless. I just waited for them to land on the wall and caught them in a large cup. The little one tried to bite me but his little mouth was so small that he couldn't. They also like to sleep under the lid on the BBQ. Haven't eaten one yet though.
Sad?! Then you definitely dont want to watch the Bizarre Foods episode when Andrew Zimmerman takes you to Asia where they toast those babies up to nice and crisp golden brown. Now THAT'S good eat'in!!
Bat, batter, battest?
What's really sad is that somebody, somewhere, is probably pitching this as a sequel to Snakes on a Plane.
That would be so awsome!
I saw that episode. They did look good.
Have you ever had teenage girls in the house at the same time as a bat?
No joke. I remember as a kid standing in a parking lot eating ice cream with my dad after football practice, one of those varmint's decided to dive-bomb me and hooked himself literally to the bottom of my jersey! Craziest thing ever
