A Brief Look at Bats

The bat exhibit at the Maharajah Jungle trek is a unique look at these amazing animals. First of all, there is no glass, so you can hear the bats in thier lush exhibit. Also, the bars are vertical not horizontal, which for human eyes is less obstructive for viewing.

There are a lot of fun things about the exhibit, as well. There are prayer flags a plenty which helped prayers of the people to be carried on the wind to the gods. And the trees are real. In fact one of them was actually planted by the bats themselves after eating the fruit giving to them by keepers.
