    The Gray Bat is my favorite of the endangered bat species, because they are the most like people.  They live in densely populated caves, like a lot of urban cities, which I am sure is high stress (the silient killer).  When aroused, gray bats tend to go off, which can lead to homicides and even suicides amongst them (sound familiar).  Seriously, there are several species of bat which are endangered, mostly because Man doesn’t understand a lot about their habits.  The Indiana bat is another personal favorite, but there is an extensive list of of endangered bats on the links below. Just click and enjoy the journey.
