What is it like to be a bat?

Q: When you think of bats, what first comes to your mind?

I am flying back to the cave, and hanging upside down with a group of other bats, ready to sleep. The most interesting thing to me is tons and tons of bats gather together and that are all hanging upside down creates a scary image.

Q: You just spent a period of time imagining what it is like to be a bat. What did you imagine?

I first imagined that I flew back to a cave to sleep during the day. In some ways I always connect bats to vampires, so the second picture/activity is that I am flying to a window. There is a person sleeping on the bed. I turned myself into mist and sneaked into the room, and bit the person's neck. The last image was one where I was chasing insects outside.

Q: During the time you were imagining, were you somewhere?

I was first in a cave with other bats, and then flying to a person's home, waiting beside the window.
