Feeling Batty
Contest Directions: Halloween is just four weeks away and the bat is one character you will see a lot during the holiday - on costumes, merchandise, and pictures. Though Halloween is associated with bats, you will not find any bats flying in the sky during this time of the year. The reason is, bats depend on insects as their primary food source, so as we get closer to the winter months and insects become unavailable, bats either prepare for hibernation (cave bats) or migrate to warmer regions (tree bats) till next summer. Bats are very special creatures - they are the only mammals that can truly fly (not just glide for short periods like flying squirrel). Their legs are weak - bats can only "walk funny" for short distances and can't stand on them for long, so they hang upside down when resting, sleeping and feeding their young. An old wife's tale has it that bats will try to get into your hair when they can. This myth originated from the fact that bats may get closer to humans to catch mosquitoes that are surrounding humans. However, bats are true masters of the flight, and as they catch mosquitoes around you they will never bump into your hair or body. If anything, they are actually doing you a big favor by eating those blood sucking insects that would otherwise prey on you. Think about it the next time you notice a bat flying nearby.
Merge bats with other animals or humans any way you wish. Many thanks to Hamid1976 for the themepost.
