Conan O'Brien Tonight Show Bat Interview

Postby NZcaver » Oct 30, 2009 12:34 pm

I was watching last night's episode of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, and there was a pretty cool segment about bats. Check it out. :bananabat:

Bat Episode Part 1

Bat Episode Part 2

Bat expert Rob Mies brought along some of his friends and a Batbox to listen to the biosonar clicks. No mention of cave habitats or White Nose Syndrome, but I thought it was pretty interesting nonetheless. Conan's other guest for the evening was Denis Leary, who apparently has a genuine fear of bats. :shock:

That was really a neat link to watch, NZ. I'll share it with others for sure. And, going along with bats this a.m., here's a link to view from the Carlsbad area. ... ~13084.asp :bat sticker:

That was very cool... more talk-shows should have more guests like that so that the masses can be educated more. Dennis Leary's reaction is the reason why these bats need more exposure to have a better understanding.

I thought the vampire bat was SO CUTE! ... seriously.
