Animal of the day – 3/14/2011 – The Hoary Bat

Hoary Bat

The animal of the day is the Hoary Bat. (Did you know: Unlike most bats that live in caves, this bat prefers to live in trees! [Though it will live in caves if need be].

It is also known to hide out in shipping crates which is part of the reason they are among the most wide-spread of bats! They’re the only bats known to live in Hawaii, and have been observed as far north as the Artic! Whoa!
