At the Edge of City Existence

The Makati Stock Exchange Building
Bats taking refuge
Quick post: Mike Asinas showed us this unusual thing happening in Makati. In the absence of caves, trees and other natural habitats, life does find a way to exist.  Fine example are these bats in the Ayala Triangle, trying to get refuge from the shade provided by the deep eaves of the Makati Stock Exchange Building.  The bats take their sleep hanging from the rough texture of the sun baffles and the concrete overhang. That is how animal adaptation works for you in this age of urban concrete jungles!

Wow! I can't decide if I should pity the bats or admire their tenacity. Maybe a bit of both. -- Bom

Bats are good seed dispersal agents. So good thing they are still around the city.
