A couple of days ago, I found something interesting in my backyard. My dog, Mocha, was looking in the wood pile under our back porch. I went to go see what Mocha was looking at. It was a bat! I called my mom and dad to come look. We took pictures. After we went back inside, we looked up "bats of Colorado" on the Internet. We learned that it must have been a brown bat. I wanted to give the bat fruit, but we learned that they eat bugs. Then I wanted to feed it ladybugs, but my mom didn't let me. A little while later, I went to go look at it again. I thought it was gone. My dad came out, and I asked him, "Which piece of wood was it on again?" He picked it up. The bat was hanging upside down! We took more pictures. When it started to get cooler, we kept checking on it. It was now closer to our patio window, and it was stretching its wings! Then, it went back to sleep. The next time I checked, it was gone for real.
Brown Interesting Facts About Bats:
Bats are nocturnal which means they are active at night.
People are sometimes afraid of bats, but I am not because I know they will not hurt me unless I bother them.
I also know that they are good for the environment because they eat bugs.
