My what big eyes you have!

It would seem that Gabriel has spent his life in the depths of bat caves- his eyes are huge.  Note he has but one helmet/ headlamp for Carina, since apparently he doesn’t need one.  Sort of reminds me of the continuing saga of Bat Boy in the Weekly World News!

White Nose Syndrome…  not to get ahead of the story here, but it affects bats during hibernation, when they are holed up in their hibernaculum, plural form hibernacula, a place where animals hibernate… so given that bats probably don’t need to hibernate in Mexico, they aren’t as prone to WNS…   but I am sure the good professor knows that.
