Do Red Bats Dream of Crunch-a-Dos?

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! I have some fantastic news! It’s not too late to order some Bat Scout cookies! Don’t you want to order a box or two for your furry friends?

And for the latest news here at Save Lucy…there is a new little bat here! She is an adorable little Red Bat. Her wing tips are damaged so she’ll never be able to fly well. She won’t be able to be released, so she’s going to stay with the other bats at Save Lucy. Isn’t this picture of her adorable?

She made it just in time to order some Bat Wings, Crunch-A-Dos, and some Caledonias. (I wonder how she is going to pay. Mealworm money anyone?) I guess that’s what red bats like to eat. I hope that she doesn’t get a sugar rush after she eats some of her cookies. I hope she has settled in and is ok. I can’t wait to meet her!
