Where to buy it


Bats are the flying mammals on earth, and contrary to popular believe, they prefer to eat flies rather than human blood! They are important to nature and we have to protect them so if you come across one, let it sleep easy!

Los murciélagos son los únicos mamíferos que saben volar y en contra de la opinión que se tiene de ellos, prefieren comerse una mosca a la sangre humana. Además, son muy importantes para la naturaleza y los necesitamos, así que hay que protegerlos. Si te encuentras a uno, déjalo dormir tranquilo.
