Bats are so cool!

Amazing bat facts from the NY Times:
  • "...while a mouse is lucky to live for a year, the Brandt’s bat can survive well into its 40s."
  • “One in every five mammals is a bat.” 
  • "When a bat flies, its heart beats an impressive 1,000 times a minute, and its metabolism ramps up 15-fold over resting rate."
And there's much more. Here's hoping they survive their recent challenges.
