Bats at Merihue Cave
Bats out of Heck.
An estimated 40,000 Mexican Free-tailed bat stream from Merihue cave. I was there with Stan Roth and we sat there for over an hour while the bats just kept coming out. Photographer Bo Rader was from the Wichita Eagle newspaper to do a story on Stan. Bo rigged a remote flash with a red gel over it to give the cave a more hellish look!
This cave is now a part of the Turner ranch.
