This little bat came from overseas. He was part of a bat farm where they raise bats for their guano. I was told that this little guy died from natural causes, and was scooped up and preserved before he became dinner for a larger animal.

I have placed him in a lantern made of metal, with glass windows. The lantern has a door on the front of it, which opens and closes, and can be fastened shut with a metal hinge peg that is attached to the door. I placed a piece of gray glitter scrapbooking paper on the bottom of the lantern to make the bat stand out a bit more, but it can be removed or replaced with something else if you want. The lantern has a ring on the top from which it can be hung, or you can just place it on a shelf or table to display it in your collection. The little bat can also be removed, as he is only tied in there with a string that is attached to the wooden rod where his feet are positioned. His mouth is opened, showcasing his beautiful little fangs! He is a real beauty and would love to find his new home.

I'm not exactly sure how this little guy was preserved, buy when he arrived in the mail, he had a strong smell of mothballs. I have since aired him out, but there is still a small scent of mothballs when you get close to him. Keeping the lantern door closed does help. But the fact remains, this little guy is hauntingly charming--even if he is a bit of a Smelly Nelly!

The lantern stands about 10 inches tall, without including the ring from which it can be hung.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thanks for looking, and have a great day!!
