A ranger gave us a very interesting presentation about the Mexican Long Tailed bats which inhabit the cave system – they are tiny creatures which would fit into a closed fist, but 300,000 of them roost in the caves during the day then emerge at dusk to go feeding. It was absolutely amazing to see them fly out: they look like a ...
