bats

Now I have an excuse to buy piles of avocado

From a mailing list:

>> Avocado, like most things, probably needs to be used with caution and
>> moderation. However, I've seen horses and cows using windfall avocados as
>> treat food and, based on advice from an American rehab line, have used it as
>> an appetite stimulant for severely underweight and debilitated microbats.
>> (Sounds impossible, doesn't it?) However, the little insectivores, given
>> about 1/4 teaspoon of avocado a day almost turn somersaults to get to it and
>> improve in weight, energy and fur condition within days.

Now... What to do with all the avocado the bat doesn't want. Hmmmm.
