  • TIL there’s a thing called a megabat.

  • A recent study i read shows that megabats will go extinct in about 25 years if humans keep on throwing trash in the ocean since it affects the genetical structure of many animals, e.g. the megabat which in the long run will make it’s body heavier than the weight the wings can carry, rendering it non-aviary and thus not able to provide enough food for itself and its family.

  • They are full of diseases.

  • That must be what Chet Ripley had in his cabin, it was about a two-pounder.

  • If you go to Singapore Zoo in the tropical house, they will eat pieces of fruit from your hand

    They are very beautiful animals

  • We need to put bats on the ISS….

    Not related, just something I think.
