Sunday Salute - Bart!

Our Sunday Salute goes to our friend Bart the Bat!

Good eeeeevening!

That's right - he's back! We first introduced you to Bart back in May of 2007. Zim told you all about how Bart lives on the underside of our upper deck and Storm posted about him in August of last year, with some better photos. (Bart's a little camera-shy.)

Bart is a Brown Bat, we believe, and as such he can eat 1,200 mosquito-sized insects per hour! Half of his own body weight per night! Mom said that with all the rain we've gotten lately, the mossies are horrible, so she was quite happy to see the return of Bart! Mosquitoes are bad news for us pups, too, so anyone who spends every waking hour trying to wipe them out is OK in our book!

Bart, for your non-stop mosquito killing skills....... we salute you!

    *Bat trivia*

  13. We have LOTS of bats living behind the shutters on our house and occasionally one of the dreaded creatures somehow gets inside the house and causes quite a stir! No way are we saluting bats but we'll let the bats know that you love them and that you'd love for them to come to your house!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  14. Mom is scared of bats, but she hates mosquitoes even worse!!
