The Largest Bat Colony In The World Is Right Here In Texas…And It’s Fascinating

Although the Congress Ave bats are more famous, they actually aren’t the largest colony in Texas. The much lesser-known Bracken Cave near San Antonio boasts the biggest bat colony in the entire world. Watching them envelop the sky in darkness on summer evenings is truly spectacular.
