        So did my uncle's dog. gay got neutered less than 1 week after he figured it out and would not stop coating himself and the immediate area in jizz.

        People hype up animals jerking off too much. It's not a sign of higher intelligence. That dog was incredibly stupid.

    I have this fond memory of being in the clearing behind my hometown's church with my best friend one night and we're both taking pisses behind the ancient hundreds year old trees that are there. Then as we are taking that piss we started getting bumped into by stuff flying around us in the night until one of us feel something furry brush up against them and we figure out that there were dozens of bats flying around us eating mosquitos and bugs and whatnot. Love em bats. Have a a pipistrelle.

    It's an anedocte, but there used to be far more bats flying around at night when I was younger. I think this relates to the decline of flying insects. I haven't seen a firefly in ages over here.

      I still see a lot of bats flying around at night here, like, A LOT. One specific bat even uses the same spot of the garage walls to sleep during the day, it has been missing for weeks but these days it is back.

          Huh, the bat around here looks fairly similar, but they’re a little more scrawny around here but not for lack of food, thats for sure

            Could it be because of the exceptional heat and not enough rain or water sources?
            Here we leave some water bowls for the cats, but I don't know if they drink from those. I've seen birds, isects and lizards too drinking but not bats.

              Right! Im sure it has to do with the heat since im fairly close to the river, which is where most of the local bats live.

          Some nights Yami hangs on the wall instead of going out to hunt insects.
          Is it a coincidence that I arrive when it is resting a bit? Is it sick? 🙁

    I like the small ones since they're small and fluffy, but the big ones are uggo motherfuckers.

    I find it interesting that we don't have any "missing link" fossils as to how bats went from non-flying to fully flying mammals. The earliest bat fossils, such as Onychonycteris, already had wings and could fly. Most believe they started by gliding like flying lemurs, but I'd be interesting if they evolved flight in an entirely different way

      It might have been a very rapid transition. Flying squirrels have been stuck in the same shape forever. Maybe you need a specific kind of gliding to transform into a bat.

      They might have evolved to swim first.

      Same case with pterosaurs. There's no missing links found, which is why the transition to flight is so poorly understood.

        Pterosaur and bats evolved from creatures with delicate membranes. Those don't preserve as well as feathers.
        Also likely from a smaller creature, unlike birds who evolved from larger theropod dinosaurs.

      What's interesting about bats unlike other gliding mammals and even birds is that they fly with their hands more so than with their entire limbs like the other animals do (hence the name Chiroptera). Flying lemurs for example have big flaps of skin between their limbs but very little around their hands and feet.

      As a kid I saw a documentary about a blind guy who made clicking noises and apparently could echolocate, but I don't know if it was bullshit or how good he could even do it
