Bats…are they smarter than your 4th grader?

Wildlife experts were at the museum this week, educating school children about bats and helping to dispel popular misconceptions about them.  Why are the important (they eat icky bugs and pollinate flowers in our gardens) and how have they survived despite human population growth?    As I did some research on them myself, I came across this story, about how a bat tried to fly into space with NASA!

Enjoy this little girl named “Patience”….aw, isn’t she cute? (?)
