You guessed perfectly.
Sorry about the late response my computer's circuit board was fried, and i finally got it replaced. I tell you not having my computer for three weeks really slows you down, very frustrating. I had my old computer but I could only surf DA I couldn't read or respond to my notes. Anyways I'm back.

I think bat's are fantastic....Your's is the large variety!!!!It's a beautiful drawing!...I've only seen tiny ones.When we were in Scotland we were watching the dusk fishermen fishing near a small island ..suddenly the whole sky was filled with hundreds of tiny bats swooping around..It was so exciting to be in the middle of them!!!I think they were Pippestrall bats!!!

That must have been a wonderful experience.
I remember in high school a bat had managed to fly into the building's cafeteria and everyone was acting scared and disgusted, and some were trying to kill it until I intervened and grabed it in my hands, and took it outside. I don't understand why people have adverse feelings towards bats, and rats, it's unfortunate and silly.

I agree...I love rats!I would love a pet one...or two!!

I found a bat when we were out on a country walk(a school one)It was a baby one... dead!I put it in a plastic see through bag so we could look at it later... in a few seconds the bag was full of fleas !!:D

Yes, they are hard to get rid of, and they like to hide.

Made me really sad! Poor little frog!

Awesome drawing! Amazing skill! I love the lighting and coloring. It's really interesting and I love the giant amount of contrast. That's part of the reason I decided to look at this piece, another is this bat reminds me of a character in a book series I just finished reading. The grass and fur are absolutely stunning! There's so much texture! Outstanding piece!
