We have all heard that the Miami real estate market is doing well right now and it can be difficult to find a place. We told you all last week about a federally endangered Florida bonneted bat that had begun roosting in a terrible location in a park in the Miami area. The Miami Bat lab went ahead and was able to install a new artificial Florida bonneted bat roost nearby in hopes that it might attract some occupants. I mean who could pass up a rent free penthouse in Miami, right?!?! Well, the market is still strong because a new couple moved into the houses in less than a week. A couple of Florida bonneted bats that is! You can see the picture of Dr. Gamba-Rios from Bat Conservation International smiling in the reflection as we see two little faces staring back at us after using our inspection camera system.
