Located in NE Alabama, the Sauta Cave National Wildlife Refuge provides protection for the federally endangered gray bat, which uses the cave as a summer roosting site. On rain-free summer evenings, about 250,000 bats emerge from the cave, making it the largest emergence of bats east of the Mississippi River. Visitors are strongly encouraged to bring a poncho and umbrella for protection from falling guano. Having over a quarter of a million bats fly out of a cave right above your head is something that really needs to be seen in person to fully appreciate.
