Bracken Cave, Texas is home to nearly twenty million free-tailed bats! That makes it the largest known bat colony on the planet — and the largest collective of warm-blooded animals. But their numbers alone are not the most impressive thing about the bats of Bracken Cave. When you see these incredible creatures fly, you will be struck with awe.

The unfortunate truth is that many humans associate bats with a lot of negative ideas and feelings. They might as well be one of the most misunderstood and unappreciated creatures animals on the planet! Many individuals do not realize that they are essential for their ecosystems and do so much for us humans as well. Not only do they control the pest population (mosquitos, flies, etc.) but they are amazing pollinators! So next time you see a bat, do not be scared! Appreciate what they do for us — they are here to help.
