Check out the high speed camera I used:

It's a pretty big deal to shoot high speed footage from a boat in the middle of the amazon jungle. Revolutionary stuff for scientists!

Thanks to Rainforest Expeditions for inviting me down, if you'd like to go down to the Amazon Rainforest and see a strangler fig and the log with bats on it for yourself, check them out at http://www.perunature.com

A sincere thank you to Dr. Kenny Breuer and Dr. Sharon Swartz. They never hesitated to help me, even skyping with me after hours.
You absolutely must check out the amazing work

Since you're smart, read their publications!

I may upload some of that on the skype conversation on the second channel, FunnerEveryDay.
Dr. Swartz Identified the bats me and Jeff filmed: "The species is Rhynchonycteris naso, which I guess is called the Proboscis bat! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proboscis_bat"

Outlines of the anatomically correct bird and the bat were drawn up by Larom for free because he likes to get Smarter Every Day, and help you do the same. He does a project like that every day.

I purchased a license to show the two flying fox images in the video from Peter Chorley

Tweet ideas to me @SmarterYouTube

Instead of saving for my kids' college, I make videos using the money I would have saved.
The thought is it will help educate the world as a whole, and one day generate enough revenue to pay for their education. Until then if you appreciate what you've learned in this video and the effort that went in to it, please SHARE THE VIDEO!

If you REALLY liked it, feel free to pitch a few dollars towards their college fund by clicking here:

Warm Regards,
