Bats Sounding Off at Chow Time

Yesterday morning, I was in town at the local eatery and came across Rusty Swingset, the foreman at the Darwin Ranch. His lady friend Jacqueline Hyde and assistant foreman Cliff Swallows were also at the table. They introduced me to the other fellow, Decker Halls, who was on loan to them through the Christmas season. Although we have diametrically opposed convictions, some Darwinists can be decent folks. We had breakfast together, and after a spell, our conversation turned to bats.

While absently fingering the bough of holly pinned to his lapel, Decker Halls said, "Bats are important mammals but very misunderstood. Most sleep in the day and feed at night, so most people don't get to see them in action. They get creeped out seeing most of a large colony going out to feed together. Bats don't place an order for pizza like we just did."

The feeding process gets complicated, since they have that echolocation going to find mosquitos and other insects for lunch. All at once. In their hearing, that's a lot of noise and they need to be able to distinguish between signals. There are other factors going on during busy times. Bats not only defy evolution, they are examples of the Master Engineer's genius — their wings, for one example.
Bats are mysterious, marvelous mammals of prey, even in a fallen world where omnivorous predation is common. Because bats are mostly nocturnal, only beginning their aerial hunting at sunset, their nighttime foraging habits often go unseen by human observers.

Scientists can discern certain aspects of bats’ gustatory preferences by their digestive byproducts. But even apart from reviewing the menus of bat diets, consider how prey-chasing bats hunt for “fast food” using echolocation, a perfect illustration of continuous environmental tracking. Let’s look at seven critical factors and real-time challenges of a bat employing sound to locate and capture its food.

To read the rest, fly over to "When Bats Dine Out at Night." Also of interest is a short question-and-answer article interviewing Ann Froschauer, deputy state supervisor at the USFWS and photographer (you may have noticed her name in the above caption) at "Bats: 'The Coolest Mammals on Earth'." The video below is quite interesting, and there is mention of a fossil millions of Darwin years old. That's a problem for evolutionists, because there is no sign of bat evolution.
