Lone Star Facts on Friday: Going Batty

More species of bats live in Texas than in any other part of the United States.

The Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History currently has a wonderful interactive children's exhibit called Bats In My World. And it is still bat season in Austin! It is wonderful to sit on a blanket and watch all the mama bats fly out from under the Congress Ave. bridge to do their night hunting. We could really use more down here to keep the mosquitos down!

I love bats!

Do you know The Bat Poet by Randall Jarrell, illustrated by Maurice Sendak? That was the book that got me into bats.
