Bat Emergence Viewings

In the summer of 2016, it was estimated the Chiroptorium had over 300,000 Mexican Free-tailed bats in residence. We periodically hosts public viewings of emergences late in the summer when the new babies are flying and numbers are highest.

If any viewing dates are posted, it is usually decided in June of each year, based on several factors such as emergence times, weather conditions and staff availability. Please check back often for any updates or opportunities.

Ranch staff will be on hand to interpret the show and talk about the ecology and significance of the Mexican Free-tailed bat. Transportation will be on the Bluebonnet and space is limited to 40 adults.

  • Cost per person is $10
