Both, I'd say! Bats have always creeped me out, but their role in the ecosystem is awesome! K.

This is the surf music Ventures? Am trying to decide if I like it or not. K.

I agree with you, K.! I'm not crazy about bats although they're not harmful to humans at all! But it was amazing on how they need so many insects that the neighboring farms don't need insecticides or pesticides because they do the job!
There should be more of these bat caves (or farms) around our farms!

As for the Ventures, while I was searching for music to go with this post, I immediately zoomed into this song, but didn't thing it was the original Ventures. But it is!

Ah, but Bracken Cave is not really a tourist attraction! I wanted to take Baby Puppy there this summer; you know how that child would love 20 million bats! To visit the cave, you have to have special permission.

I wish I'd known about that bridge!

Really, MZ? I sure can see Baby Puppy going gaga over this! She's fearless! ;)

By this account, you'd never know that you'd need permission!

Perhaps next summer, MZ! :))

I wonder what they take when they get indigestion, Jay? ;) But all kidding aside, they're amazing creatures!
