So, I'm at work this morning, out and about, getting samples for some lab work. I opened the door to one of the pumping plants and almost stained my shorts when this tiny object fluttered out! It was a Little Brown Bat.
I bet he passed a little guano, too.
He flittered down to the ground and of course my first thought was: PICTURES!
He was SO tiny and light, and his fur was silky soft.
He had translucent fuzzy wings.
Check out those tiny toes! They were surprisingly strong.
I didn't get a photo, but when he opened his mouth I saw his teeny-weeny fangs! Don't worry, he didn't want to drink my blood, Little Brown Bats eat insects. In fact, there are several bat houses on the property.
He flew off after a few minutes, no doubt cussing me out for disturbing his nap.
