Bats





I seem to be inundated with small creatures at the moment. This bat stuck itself to the wall last night. I'd better leave it alone; highly visible external walls are not good hiding places for healthy bats, and they can carry rabies. I'll see if it's still there tomorrow, and deal with it then if I have to.

Yes, but extraordinary creatures. They also carry fungal diseases that affect the lungs and can even be fatal - or maybe the disease comes from their droppings. Either way I know that cavers, especially in tropical countries, fear bats.
