    Yeah. After entire left wing (from communist china to communist california) blamed bats for artificial virus created in wuhan labs, I do agree that bats needs help. Those damn lefties keep genociding humans, but last year they turned against bats, and that's is where I draw the line.

    I watched a video somewhere and I do believe the bat was able to hold on with their little fingers and Pee with their butts hanging down. I don’t remember where I saw it but I’m definitely remembering a ridiculous bat manipulation so they didn’t create a full body skidmark.

    Hold up I don’t know that that’s for pollinators I need some of these bats dude I’m not even joking we have a pollination problem where I come from like because of the fact that we’re just now bringing in Honey bees like I need thisAnd honestly this man sounds like he’s very sweet and also a really caring and compassionate that right there makes him an ally of mine because if you’re willing to sit down and make friends with the people that should be your enemies I respect that because that takes a lot of that takes a lot of empathy compassion and understanding

    Yep...Now that I got the proper tequila hangover description, I quit drinking...It made me realize that something, bat shit crazy looking, is probably licking, chewing, pooping, vomiting or humping every agricultural product my booze is made off... On a more serious note or not...A little early to ask for contributions, to conserve bats, of all things. What's next, mosquitoes of the Anopheles genus? (the malaria ones) I have not laughed so hard since the...last clip on this channel...Literally watching them in reverse order...ALL OF THEM! Also , can anyone find the the address of the bots that downvoted this? I am starting a nightshade juice, nectar and smoothie company. I'd want their opinions on how the product interacts with their senses...

    Another way to help the bats is to put up a bat house on your property. I heard of Merlin Tuttle when I was looking for organic mosquito control and found Bat BnB, a wood bat house that is functional and looks very nice. Too many people have an unfounded fear of bats. One bat can eat 1,000 mosquitoes in an hour. We should definitely be friends.

    Hey everyone try to help Zefrank get more views on this vid. I love this video but I realise it has a lot fewer views compared to the other vids. Unfortunately I think that it's because of the "clickbaity pity" title that many people might be avoiding it. Shame, though, because Merlin Tuttle is awesome. I should know, I am a bat biologist too and have met him briefly. :)
