So it is bat flight night again. I am tired. I need to great ready to talk to theis large group. Another ranger said it is the closest thing to being a rock start to talk in front of an audience this large. I am not much of a singer so I am sure she is right. But really the people are there to see the bats fly not me. I just hope to provide some entertainment before they sprial out of the cave.
We believe they had their babies last week. There are around 426,000 mature females and many would have give birth. The babies wont fly for another 4-6 weeks. But imagine giving birth upside down while hanging on the cieling and to something that ways 20-30% of your weight. That is like a 100 pound mother giving birth to a 20-30 pound baby!
