    I hate bats, especially because I associate them with rabies.
    I don't hate bats, but sadly, I definitely associate them with rabies. When I play out in the backyard with my kids at night, you will see the odd, crazy-flying bat swoop down within about 20 feet of us, scooping up insects. The only thing that freaks me out is thinking that it might be infected.

    The first bat was the freakiest one to me. To me, it looks like the Miami Cannibal got to it or something.

    Bats are probably the only animal on earth that I hate. They are ugly and nasty. Ick. And that is saying a lot since I am the kind of person that squeals in joy at almost every animal.

    I bet you would LOVE flying foxes. 6-foot wing span - head bigger than your whole hand. And they fly in the day time.....

    Love me some bat. A bit of trivia: vampire bats practice altruism by feeding regurgitated blood to unrelated bats who haven't fed that night to ensure they don't starve, at a cost to themselves.

    I really don't mind bats, and think some are actually cute. That said, one of my worst nightmares, is for a bat colony, to move into my attic. I watched this show called "Infested", and these people had a colony in their attic, they were eating breakfast one day, and all the guano was oozing down the windows, and seeping through the ceiling. It was an endangered species of bat too, so they were kind of fucked.

    I like bats and one of the things I miss about my old place and an ex's place in Yorkshire is that I don't get to see them so much anymore. I love their acrobatics and also used to love going on a friend's canal boat so I could sit and watch them swoop and swing over the water at dusk as they hoovered up the bugs.

    Their guano smells like rancid grape Kool-Aid.

    Like bats too - they're beneficial. Found a poor dead crispy guy at the end of the driveway a couple of weeks ago - probably couldn't deal with the excessive heat here. Just keep the hell out of my house, kthxbye.

    This is a woman holding a flying fox. If you are a bat phobe, this will probably make you pass out.

    Bats just have a bad rep because of the vampire association and because they are not the most attractive creatures around. They deserve to be protected, just like other animals species. They are extremely beneficial, eat tons of insects and also pollinate crops. As for rabies, less than 1% of bats are infected. And the ones that are usually end up exhibiting odd behavior, such as flying around in the daytime, or lying around on the ground.

    I never get to see bats where I am. They would LOVE it here too because of all of the damn mosquitos.

    I was out for a walk last night and there were loads of bats out and about, swooping around and eating bugs. Love it!
