I went to Cranbrook to see their Bat exhibit. It was pretty neat seeing the bats up close. I was also amazed to find out some interesting facts (dispelled myths) about bats. You may have already known this, but did you know that the body of the bats in this area are only a few inches long? and that we have nothing to fear of bats? In this area (Michigan), there are only bats that eat insects. And vampire bats (not native to this area) do not drink human blood. Mostly cows and pigs, and they don't even drink that much. And the have some sort of anesthetic when they bite, so the animal doesn't even realize it's being bit (actually scratched).
It was pretty cool. If you get the chance to go, I'd recommend it.
