...Freeze-dried bat?

What the hell?
Really? how and why would you do this to a real bat?
Is this even real?

No I haven't.

Ewww. Poor animals! I'm guessing they aren't using a lyophilizer...what just dunk 'em in LN2 or something? poor guys... hopefully they are already dead at least?

Someone here has to be good at identifying bats and be able to tell what species that is, I'm no expert but it sure doesn't look like anything I know of that you would find around New Hampshire where it says the seller lives. And perfect condition probably means it was killed deliberately, because when things die of stuff like old age or disease they usually don't look too good. There is some info about where she gets other dead animal parts like racoon and cat bones, but there is absolutely no info on where she gets these bats.

She probably gets them from Bear Grylls.

What I want is a freeze dried bat killer. Kill animals for food or self defense. Kill animals for a curio cabinet and sorry you're going to be a not so waxy wax museum display. I'm no activist but trophys on a wall or in a cabinet are well ......not cool.
