The Bat Volcano

Clip | 1m 39s

The labyrinth of caves across the Yucatan provides the perfect roosting habitat for bats. None are more dramatic than “El Volcan de los Murcielagos," the bat volcano. Each evening, it erupts with more than 3 million bats. Bat falcons, grey hawks and brown jays wait for the feast.
