Question - I am interested in raising bats. Where do I start?


I strongly suggest you do something else. I worked with bats as a graduate

student and it is absolutely dangerous for inexperienced students. They

carry rabies, so preventative shots is a requirement. They are not or will

ever be friendly. Their guano carries diseases and that alone should be a

enough to convince you otherwise. Furthermore, you have to have a Federal

permit and in most States a second permit to keep them. Unless you have a

sponsor, it is unlikely that will happen.


What you could do is build bat friendly housing around your house, and I

suggest you seek out that information at a library. Bats are great for

keeping flying insects populations under control.

'suddenly the sky turned black and there were these huge bats all swooping and screeching around the car, and a voice kept screaming HOLY JESUS WHAT ARE THESE GODDAMMED ANIMALS!'
