Welcome To The Bat Cave At Las Vegas McCarran International Airport

Flying into Las Vegas McCarran International Airport? If you arrive at dusk, you can watch Las Vegas's colony of bats fly by. Yep, those bats love Vegas too.

The Mexican freetail bats live in the employee parking garage. They roost in two-inch nooks behind concrete panels. They've been there since 1985.

The best place to watch them is from the sixth floor of the airport parking garage for Terminal 1. Watch as they flutter around the control tower. 

For those who love irony:  Jets is the nickname for Mexican freetails because they fly up to 60 miles an hour eating insects. Apparently they love the summer insect buffet provided by the Luxor Hotel and Casino light at the top of the pyramid. It points to True North, in case you didn't know.

Bats at dusk are a big draw in Austin. There's a huge colony under the Congress Street Bridge. Crowds appear at dusk every day to watch them majestically head out to dinner.

Just thought you'd like to know.
