soo Hows teaching going?? (are last sub teacher called us horrific so count your self lucky you don't teach our class xD)
I am so tired. Technically I’m ‘blocking,’ which means I’m taking college classes, and any time I’m not in a college class I’m in my 6th grade classroom with my cooperating teacher and my weird little critters. I love it, and I’m so excited to be a teacher, but I am so. freaking. tired.
More bats? more bats!! Another little guy for my critter cards, again.
This is the little brown bat, a species currently plagued by infestations of a fungus which causes white-nose syndrome. This is a big problem for several species of bats in North America, where it’s causing mass die-offs as researchers scramble to figure out how to stop the spread and find cures or preventative measures.
Can you believe that this bat is fully grown? Believe it. The common pipistrelle bat (Pipistrellus pipistrellus) is so small that it can fit on the tip of your finger. You can discover more tiny animals here.
