Mexico’s Bat Man: Fighting to Protect Maligned Creatures

It is not uncommon for Rodrigo Medellin to start his day at night.

At the moment, he has a headlamp switched on and is walking into the Cueva del Diablo – the Devil’s Cave – near Tepoztlán, Mexico.

Suddenly, Medellin stops. The ceiling of the cave, just eight feet above his head, is furry and moving.

“There’s a lot of Mexican long-nosed bats over here,” he says.

About 2,000 Mexican long-nosed bats are making soft, high-pitched noises. But looking up at a colony like this is just asking for trouble.

Medellin grimaces. “Ffffft! I’m getting pee on my eyes.”
