Vampire Bat Running

After seeing the vampire bat art here, I needed to post this video. It’s an old video from a study done on the mobility of vampire bats… Since vampire bats often nibble on the ankles of big cows who may flick their big ankles at the little bat, or wake up and move around on the bat, these little dudes need to be able to hoof it. This is the craziest, like, reverse-crab-walk ever. I love it. Enjoy an old science video of a vampire bat running.
