What is it like to be a bat?

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

Besides Dracula, what comes to mind is how they swarm. Bats seem to always be together. I find it interesting how social bats are, living together and hunting together.

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

I imagined an empty field with one bridge over a river. I was a bat under the bridge with an entire swarm with me. Once sunset came we flew out into the night sky. A couple of times I would swoop down to eat a bug.

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

The field I imagined didn’t seem to be anything special. Nice grass, blue water, and a brick bridge. The field led to a dense forest in every direction. Nothing more, nothing less.
