Other "bat facts" of interest: Bats are not blind. They have the same five senses we do, smelling, hearing, tasting, seeing and feeling. Bats do not attack people and they won't get tangled in your hair. Bats are actually quite timid and basically ignore humans. Bats are not flying rodents. The most common misconception that people have is that all bats are rabid. This is not true.
If anyone was bitten by the bat, or possibly transferred saliva from the bat to an open wound, their eyes, mouth, or nose, they need to seek medical attention immediately. In that case the bat will need to be saved so it can be tested to see if it has rabies.
