This morning I took my dog outside and the next thing I know, she is in the yard messing with something. I figured it was some kind of bug or maybe a toad. So, I headed over toward her to stop her from messing with whatever it was and to my surprise it wasn't a bug or toad. It was a bat!! Yes, you heard me right.....a bat. Now, I don't know a whole lot about bats, but I guess I had always assumed that they stayed in dark places like caves, not in someones yard. My neighbor happened to be walking by and saw it. I was informed that they live in trees as well and they eat the insects. So, he graciously picked it up off the ground (with a stick of course) and placed it back in the tree. Today, I learned a little more about bats!
You better go and check your trees and see if you have one of these creatures living there!
Have a great day!
