Honduran white bats,
sheltering under a leaf

Basically this whole thread is to keep Duncanthrax appeased for the next six months.

TheBatBnB makes Bat Bed-and-Breakfast boxes for bats to congregate and sleep in, to help save the bats. They posted a lot of the pictures I'll be posting in this thread.
