A few months ago I learned that bats are the second most numerous species of mammals after rodents, they make around 20% of mammals. This kinda blew my mind because I always thought that bats as flying mammals where the exception to the rule. It's easy to think that the air is only for the birds and not realize how many types of bats there are and that they're virtually everywhere too.

To be fair bats are nocturnal for a reason. The air belongs to the birds, bats have to tread carefully to avoid getting hawk'd.

I hate bats because of rabies
I don't know why there aren't bat rabies public awareness campaigns in Australia

There’s a bat in front of my room. I’ve looked up the rabies stats in my country and the universities say to not worry about it unless it’s a bloodsucking bat. He’s eaten fruits (the bloodsucking bats don’t eat fruits) and sure as hell doesn’t look like one of them, so I will let him chill.

The problem is that bats, due to their high body temp as well as their mammalian physiology, are a breeding ground for deadly/novel diseases that can easily infect humans. They really should be culled whenever possible
