Creepy Castle Critters – BATS in Oman!

If you’re an avid explorer of forts, castles and watchtowers in Oman, you’re bound to see (or at least hear) some bats eventually.  During my recent trip to Al Suwaiq Fort/Castle, I heard what seemed to be chirping or tweeting sounds from between the castle walls.  I was sure that it must be a bunch of birds…

Would this sight freak you out if you were visiting a fort in Oman?

You can be sure that there are plenty of bats around when you see such a mess! (and no, those aren’t hershey’s kisses, boys and girls! 🙂 )

This is what I saw as I looked up in one of the spaces immediately in front of the corner towers just before several bats pooped on my head. (Good thing I was wearing my sunglasses! 😉 )

If you’re curious to see bats in Oman, it might be time to explore some of the countless forts and castles. Just look out for falling poop!
