Calling all Chiropterologists October 31, 2021

 Someone who studies bats (the flying mammal) is a Chiropterologist. I often refer to October as ‘Batober.’ I love bats and am fascinated by them. The scientific name for bats is Chiroptera, which is Greek for “hand wing.” That’s because bats have four long fingers and a thumb, each connected to the next by a thin layer of skin. Sadly bats are much maligned and feared. Here are 10 reasons you should love bats. The photo above is of course the gang that lives with me at Casa Lobo. Mr. Pepe and the rest of the gang wish you all a very safe and candylicious Holloween.

So cute pics of your family – and the bat captures are fab for Halloween – so thanks Judy and Happy Halloween!
By the way – did you know groups of bats can power things? Yes indeed – they’re called bat-arrays.
