YOU MAY NOT KEEP A BAT AS A PET
Bats are indiginous wild animals that need the company of others of their species in order to thrive.
Many children that find a bat would like to keep it as a pet. To do so would be not only cruel to the bat but illegal as well.
Bats live a long time and need very specialised care. Only people who have been trained and who have special permits are allowed to keep and treat bats.
If you or your child would like to get more involved with bats then join BATS KZN and get involved in our batty activities. Eventually, if you are suitably dedicated, you can get the training, experience and permits necessary to look after them properly.
