If you are unfamiliar Bracken Cave is the largest bat population, and one of the largest known concentrations of mammals in the world. Every summer 20 million Mexican free-tailed bats come to Texas to give birth to baby bat pups. Every night for a few short months the bats emerge to feast on thousands of pounds of insects. We will hike about a half mile to observe the bats as they depart the cave entrance at dusk, in what may be considered one of the world’s greatest and unknown animal displays on the planet!
