Since the arrival of the smaller ice-bats a few weeks ago big Ice-Bat has been keeping himself hidden away from the others most of the time, which was beginning to worry me a little.
This morning this came to a head with me finding him standing next to one of the lamps in my living room, with him making sniffing noises every few seconds.
I asked him what was wrong to which he replied, "Why does I not glow in the dark like the new guys, I is also an Ice-Bat!".
I was on the spot and had to think quickly, so I told the big guy that only the smallest and youngest Ice-Bat's can glow in the dark, as when they get older this ability changes from glowing to giving them much stronger wings to allow them to fly faster and longer than before.
I'm not sure if he believed me or not, hopefully he did otherwise I may have to obtain some of Babo's awesome help and skills once again.
