    Haha, bats. I love 'em. :3

    Though, my admiration of bats got me in trouble last year. I did one of the most stupid things possible. I went to my attic looking for something saw a little brown bat hanging out on the wall, and was like "awww! It's so fluffy and small~!" and then went and attempted to use two fingers to gently touch it's fluffy back out of curiosity. Well, needless to say, the bat (rightfully) got pissy with me waking it up and bit me on the index finger tip.

    I left it alone and went down stairs.

    A few hours later, I thought "Hm, maybe a bat bite is a bad thing?" and researched it on the Internet, and was scared straight by articles about rabies and the like. We had to go to the ER under the explanation of "I pet a potentially rabid bat and now I might get rabies."
    I got a huge needle full of Hemoglobin jabbed into my finger tip (which SUCKED.) as well as in my thighs, ass cheek and other places which I forget. A few weeks later of regular rabies shots, I vowed to never try and touch a bat or approach/disturb, even if it was with no malicious intent, a wild animal again.

    They also, at the ER, wanted us to catch the bat that had bit me and kill it and bring it in for examination of it's brains, for rabies so they can determine if I am in threat of getting it. But, I was firm in my answer of "no." I didn't think the bat deserved to die for doing nothing but defending itself against a big scary human. The bat's life shouldn't be taken for an act of MY stupidity. So, the bat was left to fly free. I think it still hangs out in the attic.

    FFFFFFFFAAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKKEEEEEEEEE.

    The closest thing to sessile land animals are certain kinds of larva and fungi.

    Their tongue attaches to somewhere before their sternum and also I'm pretty sure they were the inspiration for sandshrew.

    Well, personally I'm thinking more about armadillos for that, they fit the physical look bit better. Though they're cute too.

    But these things, damn. The pink fairy armadillo. I never liked these as a kid because they just look.. wrong. Like mole-shrimps.

    Oh and the flat, hairless butt of the pink fairy armadillo reminded me of this unholy thing, the one thing that has made me truly go "DO NOT WANT".

    Imagine you're digging a pile of dirt and you see this odd.. plug, or a bottle cap looking thing. In the ground.

    WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THAT THING.
    Anyway, that trapdoor spider actually uses its armored butt-half to prevent anyone coming to its tunnel.

    Also the pelican spider, which eats other spiders. It has a neck.
    Yes, these are real.

    Wow that Pelican Spider is pretty cool. It doesn't really look like a spider, just a weird creature.

    How about bat-eared foxes? Probably the most consistently cute things in existence, especially the pups:
