An Alternative Batman
Bats are often associated with vampires or other mysterious, mythical creatures, which is only part of what makes them seem so scary. It turns out there’s a type of bat, most commonly found in Africa, called Hammerhead Bat, which looks like the stuff nightmares are made of.
This Hammerhead Bat reminds us of the gargoyle – a grotesque statue of a mythical figure that often adorns old European castles. We’re not sure there’s any connection between the two, but we know the Hammerhead Bat isn’t common around Europe.
