The Bat Cave
While visiting Isurumuniya Vihara, the rock temple in Anuradhapura, I heard telltale squeaking – lots of it. It came from a crevice in the rock, just beside the temple. I approached in disbelief... Inside the crevice, in perpetual shade but only inches from the part of the stone that is constantly sun-baked, the rock was covered in a fluttering, squeaking, furry mantle.
