I was all excited to show this to my wife, because she loves bats, but just actual bats. This is more like Put A Bat On It: The Tumblr. It's OK though Whelk, I forgive you this time.

I approve of this and all things related to bats, except when they get into your gable-end vents and their guano runs all down the side of the house. Then you sort of shoo them out, hang a piece of loose plastic over the vents, and hope they relocate to somewhere else closeby.

...and for more bat-related SQUEE, watch the story of Lil Drac (and don't miss part 2 either).

Bats are my favorite type of bug. They kill mosquitoes and doesn't afraid of anything. Though gazing at one face to face (upside down) is a little unnerving.

My mother has had a longstanding, intense fear of bats. Even she found Lil Drac positively adorable.

You can encourage them to hang around the property by building them a bat house. HEY, BATS!

I love it when the bats come out at dusk to hunt, but if I don't get my cats inside before then they go batshit crazy trying to chase them. Thankfully the bats are way too fast.

All the bat houses I put up in central NJ just got filled with jerk squirrels.

I want one of these in my house so badly.
