Whoa, don't do that! They might bite you in the eye

Like I mentioned before. I just found it really interesting that a bat would take up residence in a coat sleeve. I know enough what to do for my own health if I find one in my house, but now I have to worry about one hanging upsidedown in a coat sleeve and definitely receiving a bite??? Yechh!

Do you guys see a lot of bats, then? I've never seen one in a house, but once in a blue moon I'll see one fly past my house if I'm outside at night. My friend once found an injured bat and nursed it back to health, I think they had it tested. She has pictures of it sitting on her shoulder

I would love to see that picture, Lynd.
England doesn't have rabies, right?

Welcome to Bat Conservation International

Bat Conservation International has good info on bats and rabies. About one person in the US gets rabies from a bat each year, so really, you don't have much to worry about.

Bats are our buddies--they eat lots of skeeters and other nasty bugs.
