Pretty little surprise

Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a 7th grade student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted this wild colony for years.

Hi Everyone! Another unusual bat came to the people at Save Lucy. I’m so happy because it might be a new species for around here. It looks like an unusually colored red bat, but some people think it’s something else. It might be a Seminole bat. Some hair samples are being sent for a DNA test to see what kind of bat she is.

She was found on the road and it looks like she might have been hit by a car. She was very lucky because nothing was broken, but she has a head trauma. She’ll stay with the people at Save Lucy through the cold winter weather so that her brain can recover. Isn’t she cute?
