Dude, Where Are My Bats?

Scientists Lost Her Bats after Cyclone Larry. I guess it's bad when the subject of your study disappears:

Cyclone Larry, which hit Australia's northeast in March, has scattered 10,000 flying foxes far and wide, says a zoologist.

And CSIRO's Dr Louise Shilton needs to find this local species of crow-sized, fruit-eating bat quickly.

The event is both good and bad for her ongoing project to monitor the usually poorly distributed animals.

It's bad news because it's rather difficult to study animals you can't find.
