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.
Have you ever been to Bracken Cave?
Here’s a video of the bats in action. Prepare to be amazed.
