Could this be love?

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.

Hello everyone! Have a happy Valentine’s Day today! As most of you know Fierce and Gladys are a lovely couple. This year Fierce has done something very special. He has written a poem! Here it is.

It must be love!!
It must be love!!

Mealworms are brown,
Some moths are too,
Now I am hungry,
Oh, and I love you!

- From Fierce to Gladys!

He also wrote a note…

Dear Gladys,

I love you even more than a waxworm and they are yummy. All this talk of food is making me hungry. I hope the humans feed us soon.


Isn’t that just the most romantic thing you’ve ever read??? Something tells me Fierce has a lot to learn. I hope Gladys doesn’t mind.
