I get that bats freak a lot of people out. I'm not one of them, but I get it. The sort of cross that uncanny valley where the flapping, silent critter almost looks right, but something is quite off. Add in the squeaks and flapping noises of a few thousand in a dark, confined cave; and you've got all the ingredients for a major living nightmare.
I promise that this One Minutes Memories video of mine will not do that. It was recorded at a safe distance. You really only see brief shapes dashing across the light source. No creepy squeaks or flapping noises. They sound a little like crickets in the jungle, actually.
