This fruit bat resides at the Oregon Zoo. I think bats are so very cute, they remind me of Chihuahuas with wings. How can you not fall in love with that tiny, fuzzy face? If bats were kept as pets, I would so have one… or two… or three… As it is I just enjoy the little ones we get here in the warmer weather. They like to spend the day in the gaps in the siding of our house. When we used to have wooden shingles, they would spend the day there. Then at dusk they would come out together. There must have been well over a hundred of them then, it was a sight to behold. My husband and I would set up the lawn chairs and wait for that special moment when they would swoop over us like a dark blanket. Sounds twisted I guess, but it is actually quite beautiful. This planet we are living on is simply full of beauty and wonder, it just takes eyes willing to see it.
