Anywhere that appears dark and safe
One way to have a close encounter with a bat: hang your laundry outside to dry overnight. If you get lucky, like Abbie Hawkins, you may find a baby bat nestled in your bra the next morning.
While a bra may seem like an unusual place to find a bat, a spokesperson from the Bat Conservation Trust noted that bats “roost anywhere that appears dark and safe”. Good to know. And now, I’m off to do some laundry.
