I get this call from this frantic receptionist at a local law office - seems this little fellow decided to roost for the day on the phone box at their front door and they didn't know what to do. From the frantic description I thought he was a full grown vampire bat or something - but he's just a little baby fruit bat. Some people are just terrified of bats, must be all that Dracula raz-ma-taz they saw as kids or something. He will be ideal to help rid my fruit trees of bugs this summer.

People are nutty. They don't recognize a good thing when they see it. He is a cutie. Hope he grows up to be a big healthy guy and lives a long bat life. I wish we had them here, but I've never seen one.

Look out bugs

After escaping twice from the carrier I put him in, and a 1/2 hour of chasing him around the house I finally caught the little fellow and got him back in the box. He had a good meal of fresh sliced liver, his little backpack was bulged, and at dusk we went out to the apple tree and he was last seen prowling up one of the branches pouncing on one big ant after another for his desert. Healthy little guy - and boy could he fly, much harder to catch than any of my birds.

Bye-Bye little fellow - I hope you eat all the ants off that tree.
