Egypt: Bats in the Temples

None of the ancient Egyptian drawing or sculptures or reliefs depict bats. And yet I found them in at least three temples, deep inside the last sacrificial chambers, hanging peacefully within an arm’s reach. Who said that there is no wildlife to be seen on an Egypt trip?! Most likely this was Egyptian Fruit Bat or Rousettus Aegyptiacus.
