I was entirely disturbed by this scene. Three million bats live on top of each other in this same cave, even though the whole island is covered in
caves, they insist on sticking together in this exact location, flying sometimes more than 100 kilometers away, only to return here.
I jokingly ask the transvestite guide if s/he thinks it is the site of a satanic burial ground, but it is seriously a weird happening, and one for
which ecologists have no logical explanation.
For the record, I was obviously also joking about firebombing the cave, but it is extremely unnerving to see this place, as I think is at least partly
understandable in the video.
In case anyone is interested, here is part one of the video, where I talk to the staff about "the plight of the bats":
Other than that it is super weird and science is completely incapable of explaining why it is happening?
The concept that animals can recognize certain energy patterns on the earth, and that certain species of animals are psychically drawn to specific
types of concentrations is also an interesting concept, which I think would classify as "paranormal".
Why all of the bats in a radius of hundreds of kilometers all live in a single spot, and are not even attempting to branch out to one of the other
caves even though they are living on top of each other.
The island is covered with caves, none of which have a single bat in them. They all live in that spot, even though they are absolutely cramped. This
has never happened anywhere else in the world with fruit bats. This is also the densest population of fruit bats in the world, and they continue to
multiply each year.
Though that was definitely a joke, it was certainly a very unsettling scene.
And yeah, they are mating, continuing to multiple exponentially within a limited space, which is something else that the ecologists and such were
incapable of explaining. Originally they supposed that it was due to the fact that people hunt them, but they went all the way up to caves in the
mountains where no one lives, and would not be hunting them, and still found no bats. They are all in this one place.
If all the humans in a hundred mile radius were living in one house, on top of each other, and continuing to breed at a rapid pace without ever
discussing the idea of some of them moving out to another house? Yeah, I might joke about fire-bombing them.
But I guess I have a strange sense of humor. It seems though that as I have repeatedly stated that I was joking, that even if you don't get my sense
of humor you should be able to take it for what it is and move on.
Yeah, the outrage is a bit confusing to me. I was especially surprised to find that 50 cared so much about bats, until I Googled it and found that 50
Cent has used a significant portion of his fortune to establishing a bat-defense organization called "My Little Niggas Wiff Wings: Doncha Firebomb
Dem Bats, Homie".
