Serotine Bats and Sex

A pair of Serotine bats recently made news after being recorded on a church camera making love (you read that right), albeit ‘non-conventionally’, making them the first known wild mammals to indulge in non-penetrative fertilization! I know you all might claim to be such ‘wild mammals’ too, but that discussion is for another day.

Comic from my column with Roundglass Sustain. Read more about the church footage from Castenray, Netherlands, leading to a scientific report on the Serotine bats here.
