Thanks to Carrie Vines for the link to this bat website where I found Orkin! Orkin is my new bat that I just adopted and they say that Orkin is a very happy and smiley bat.
Orkin sounds a lot like me because Orkin is a snuggler...although from the description he also sounds a bit promiscuous! It was nice to read up and learn more about these creatures.
There is a good Myth section too!
So to clarify...
Bats are not flying mice
Bats are not blind
Bats do not try to become tangled in hair
Bats are not ugly or dirty
NOT ALL BATS ARE VAMPIRES (good to know)
Bats do not carry rabies
Bats are shy, gentile and intelligent
So again thanks everyone!
