Der Spatling

Der Spatling of Halloween fame, but it's a 'real' scary time for this little guy. The greater horseshoe bat is one of the rarest out of the fourteen species of bats found in Britain. Current estimates show that there are approximately between 4,000 and 6,000 Greater Horseshoe Bats left. They are becoming victims of insecticides, which have been used to kill insects found in crops and depriving them of their insect food. The Greater Horseshoe Bat is one of the most endangered species on earth. If you see Der Spatling tomorrow night, please keep him safe. (see you all at my e-Art Sale Nov 1st - all day - here on my blog - time to holiday shop!)
