Bats are fascinating creatures that belong to the order Chiroptera, making them the only mammals capable of sustained flight. With over 1,400 species worldwide, bats exhibit a remarkable diversity in size, appearance, and feeding habits. While they play crucial ecological roles as pollinators, seed dispersers, and insect controllers, there are some misconceptions about their propensity to attack humans.
In general, bats are not aggressive towards humans and do not seek out human interaction. They are nocturnal animals, preferring to roost during the day in secluded areas such as caves, trees, or buildings. Bats may occasionally fly near humans, especially when they are foraging for insects or navigating their surroundings, but they do not typically pose a threat.
But apparently, here’s one bat that didn’t get the message. This group of campers near Mount Hood, Oregon, was just chilling: playing the guitar and a homemade percussion instrument, loving the outdoors. Suddenly this bat appears and he does not like what he hears!
