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!
