Angela! One of your little friends just knocked over my recycling bin.


Dave, it may have been one of my friends, but it was not one of the "little" ones!

Another raccoon video at my house. More chihuahua than
raccoon, but she's in there.

Though in the desert there are less bats and insects than this...

Near sunset We have something I think Angela might not have, BATS, they eat insects and if the climate were good enough to grow bananas, they pollinate bananas, mangos and peaches according to this site here.

When we think about pollination, it is typically the birds and the bees that come to mind. Most people have no clue that the bat also places a huge role in that process. This takes place on a very large scale around the world. Some areas do depend on the pollination of bats more than others. They include Africa, Asia, and the Pacific Islands.

Bats help with the pollination of many types of fruit in the world. This includes bananas, mangos, and peaches. It is believed that over 500 different types of tropical plants are pollinated successfully every single year through the bats role. The fact that the bats can fly quite a distance before they drop seeds also helps to keep areas of growth highly diversified.

Bats tend to like flowers that don’t give off strong scents or offer bright colors. This is the opposite of what attracts bees. These types of flowers that the bats like also seem to have lots of nectar offered in them. Many experts believe that the birds and bees take the day shift and the bats take the night shift. Everything that we know about pollination in the day time occurs at night with the bats.

The bats don't live here, just nearby in old mines or small caves...
