bat matters

I think the bat in the tent has forgiven me. Or, at least, she now tolerates me in that "Give me food this instant and I won't rip your head off" way. I let her fly around the room for 30 minutes last night. For the records I've named her Xena.

The colony of freetails are upset because I moved them out of the box so I could paint it. I now have all the mounting backets to screw the box to a tree. They can go back to the release site Real Soon. After a bit of research I came to the conclusion that they are inland freetails, not southern freetails. The species are identical except that the male southern freetails have bigger dicks, about 20mm. The male I have has a 10mm dick. Thank heavens for vernier calipers and dettol.
