I do have to give it to this winged rodent, he sure looks comfortable in the water!
Ok obviously I was kidding about the whole Michael Phelps thing. Phelps is a little bit faster than this bat, but just by a little.
I have seen a lot of strange animals taking their game to the water. Deer, squirrels, raccoons, and even that old video of the Elephant that could waterski.
However, never have I seen a bat going for a leisurely swim. Watch the video below to see for yourself!
It is unsure how this bat made it into the water or where in fact it actually is. There seems to be some people speaking in a language other that English just outside the frame. So I think it is safe to say that this is not taking place in the good old USA.
No matter where this event took place, I certainly wish I could have been there to see it!
