Colony of Bats

I dont remember when was the last time I encountered a bat in my life time.  But when I saw a colony of bats (a group of bats is called colony) in my office campus, it was very scary.  I thought they were crows, disturbed by a death of a fellow bird or so.

For long, we know bats as spooky birds having watched several mythological movies.  I researched on the internet and I found them to be scientifically great animals.  I wonder how did our education system does not bring all these fascinating facts during our schooling. Bats seem to be friendly mammals.

Today' sight of bats certainly created some interest in bats. I will explore and come back when I find something interesting.
