‘Batty’ - Article on our Free-tailed Bats
July 16 & 17, 2006 - Animal Planet was here filming for a New Series that Began Jan.19, 2007
'Ms Adventure' - starring Rachel Renstra (a former stand up comic) Our main guide Bain Walker who has been leading the Bat Tours since 1998 was on the show with her. Bain took her rappelling into the cave, then they suited up, went down inside to see the bats on the ceiling wall, then she interviewed & asked him questions while the bats were flying out. Several of the tourists watching the filming & bat flight got autographs & photos with 'Ms Adventure'. Look for the Series 'Ms Adventure' - Fridays at 8pm Central Time. Bain & the Frio Cave Bats were on the segment called "Cliques" (as in Herds, Flocks, Colonies) Bain did a great job & the filming was awesome!
The Animal Planet web site has a schedule on when it will air again, also photos & videos you can see. http://animal.discovery.com/fansites/ms-adventure/ms-adventure.html
