It is unfortunate that the average person has a deep prejudice against the bat.

Without looking or thinking for himself, he accepts a lot of absurd tales about the winged one, and passes them on and on, never caring for the injustice he does or the pleasure he loses.

The bat is the climax of creation in many things, highly developed in brain, marvelously developed in senses, clad in exquisite fur and equipped, above all, with the crowning glory of flight.

He is the prototype and realisation of the Fairy of the wood we loved so well as children, and hated so to be robbed of by grown-ups, who should have known better.

I would give a good deal to have a bat colony where I could see it daily, and would go a long way to meet some new kind of bats.
