“Sorry for Partying.” -Fruit Bat

It turns out I have more in common with my favorite animal than I thought. NOTE: Usually I find an article and then regurgitate it into the cheeping mouths of our readers in my own words. In this case, I kind of like how the article was written in the first place, so I’m just going to link to it..

Great pic.

Thanks to NVDH for uncovering this one.

P.S. Isn’t it hilarious when you go to make a tag called “alcohol” for a piece on the blog, but that tag has already been created? Clearly we’ve covered this topic before.

    Aye aye lemurs, dolphins, cave swifts, insectivorous micro-bats all echolocate, but I’ve never heard of any fruit bats which echolocate.

    Why test a drunk arboreal frugivore for echolocation?

    Ben, you should invent a new fruit drink called arboreal frugivore. It should have rum in it.

    Old world Fruit bats do not echolocate, but the New World species are a separate lineage and my understanding is that they evolved from echolocating insectivorous species. I think the orginal paper may be on PloS.

    pretty tricky camera work, plus a horse trained to flatbed be dragged over him. Or else just drugged. Dramatic

    Origram is perfect for my new web-site which is inspired by Japanese Kimono! It will likely be great for just a logo and Headlines.

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
