Dead bat, that remains hanging on the wall of the cave. Her mouth is open and on the body were observed little bugs. It was very impressive, because usually the bats found dead on the floor of caves. Question is why she died. The visit to this cave was the month of September 2012, a period that is, bats are awake and fed. Generally avoided visits to caves with bats in the months November through March because hibernate. Anyway the show was impressive but simultaneously melancholic.

Location: Cave Eptamyloi near Serres city in Greece
