Caves are without question the number one habitat we think of when it comes to bats, but it might surprise you to know that there could literally be THOUSANDS of bats living right under a place many of us use every single day...the road! This week Coyote has teamed up with wildlife expert Philip "Wildman" Rakoci to seek out the Mexican Free-Tail Bat under the dark desert highways of Arizona.

Most people are terrified of bats but Coyote and Wildman Phil are determined to show you why these stealthy little predators are nothing to fear and are actually pretty darn cute!

Special Thanks to Wildman Phil for all of his help on this episode and make sure to check out his work in animal conservation and education at
