Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

This streaming video shows the hunting behavior of one species of bat, the woolly false vampire bat, Chrotopterus auritus, as it hunts down another species of bat, a frugivorous wrinkled-faced bat, Centurio senex, then kills and eats it. For some odd reason, this video reminds me of Wall Street [1:23]

    Very cool.. but that narration is appalling: the false vampire isn’t doing anything like ‘blood drinking’, it’s just eating it.

    Yes, very cool. I also think the narration is terrible. National Geographic seems to be slipping. I suppose now that they have their own channel they need to produce enough populist bilge to fill the airwaves.
