My little pretties! ;-))

fruit bats Posted by Hello
As you can see from this photo, bats form extremely sociable and tight-knit communities, and also model for us the type of prosocial, helping behavior known as "reciprocal altruism", i.e. "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" - at least the blood-sucking ones do, taking it in turns to "shout" each drinks. Not too sure if that also applies to fruit bats or not, but I could not resist the pic! I have put in both these pics in honour of MBat (see email) ;-))

Good to hear that bats have mastered reciprocal altruism.
