Episode Summary

Mexican Free-Tailed Bat
The Kratt brothers head down to Texas, America in July to learn the mysteries of the Mexican Free-Tailed Bats. They navigate through the guano-filled cave containing the largest concentration of these bats by means of respirators; these gas masks are used to counter the heavy ammonia gasses present in the cave. Camped inside the oven hot cave together with the 20 million bats, the brothers observe the birth of babies known as ‘pinkies’ and watch them grow to the point where they are able to fly. They follow the flights of these bats on hot air balloons as they emerge from their caves at sundown and observe as Texas rat snakes lie in wait at the cave entrance to prey on them.moreless
