Our planet is populated with plenty of bizarre and astonishing creatures.

Did you know this about bats? The latest newsletter from Texas Gardener Seeds has these interesting facts about bats:

  1. Bats consume 3,000 or more mosquitoes and other insects nightly.
  2. Bats are responsible for up to 95% of the seed dispersal essential to the regeneration of forests.
  3. Bats are less likely to be rabid than dogs are.

So put up a bat house to encourage the presence of these shy animals!

Here are three from the Bat Family:


Sucker-Footed Bat


Red-Winged Fruit Bat


Left-Winged Ding Bat
