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

When I think of bats what comes to mind is the first time i encountered a bat. It was night time in Mexico. I remember wondering where the bat was going and how they were flying around because I remembered reading about how they are blind.

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

I imagined the bats changing colors when they touched an object. For example, if a bat ate a pink fruit the bat would change into a glowing pink and stay that color until it came into contact with another object like a tree. I know this is unrealistic as to what a bat does, but I couldn't get those visuals out of my head.

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

I was in a rainforest with many surrounding caves.
