April 22, 2009

We saw the bats at Carlsbad Caverns!! Boy are they BIG!! LOL! Just kidding......this is actually part of the nocturnal exhibit at the Living Desert Zoo. We did go to Carlsbad this evening and we really did see the bats fly from the cave around 7:35pm. It was not their full compliment, but there were a few thousand bats that spiralled out of the cave. It was exciting! We plan on coming back sometime in October because that is when the bats are usually at their highest number.
This is our adopted bat from Carlsbad Caverns. For a mere $5.00 you can adopt your very own bat. You get a certificate of adoption, bumper sticker, and photo. Now, I need a name for our newest member of the family. So, here is your can leave your suggestion in the 'comment' section of my blog. I'm pretty sure this is a female bat, but if you have a good male name go ahead and submit it.

And that's about it for today. Tomorrow is travel day and we did our usual cleaning and laundry duty. We are heading to Bottomless Lakes State Park near Roswell. I know, going to make for a long travel day! LOL!
