Story update April 9, 2014
The framing on the bats side of the building is almost finished! Next comes electrical and plumbing. While this is occurring the flight enclosures will also go up.

The first photo was taken from the front of the building looking into the fruit bat's flight enclosure. This indoor enclosure measures 25' x 40'

The second photo was taken from the back of the building looking toward the front. The large opening in the center of the fruit bat's flight enclosure will eventually contain double doors that will open into the semi-outdoor flight space that will occupy the bay area. Their semi-outdoor space will measure 32' x 42'. The double doors to the semi-outdoor enclosure can be opened about nine months out of the year because TX doesn't have much of a winter.

Thank you so very much for your support! More to come!
