Animals to the MAX is back and all-new just in time for Halloween with “Batman”, Joe D’Angeli. Joe has been working with bats for over 25 years and currently runs the WILD Life Conservation and Education Center home to over 40 bats in Garfield, New Jersey. We discuss Joe’s early passion for bats and how that led him to acquire his first one 25 years ago. Joe also covers common misconceptions people have about bats and the benefits they provide. Other topics include bat intelligence, husbandry, and how he’s preparing for the biggest night of his life, speaking at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.
