Meet One of the Creators Behind the UF Bat Houses
NORTH CENTRAL FLORIDA - Tonight we are meeting one of the creators behind the bat houses at the University of Florida.
The houses hold thousands of bats and and a single bat can eat a thousand flying insects an hour at night.
Enter biologust Steve Barlow - he helped the University of Florida design the bat houses they use today to make them the best they could for bats...and to make them easy to build.
Steve Barlow, one of UF bat house creators: "Really unique wildlife viewing opportunity, the one we have on campus the huge bat house there you know its a great thing for folks to come out and watch the bats out there, a very unique wildlife viewing opportunity and a great educational tool."
The original bat houses at UF were built in the early 90's and have since been reconstructed, the design for the bats improving with each construction.
