Bats and Palms

This morning I talked with a guy who collects palm seeds from the trees in the neighborhood around our office. He resells them to nurseries for propagation.

I had previously noticed a lot of seeds from which the pulp had been removed laying on the sidewalks. The seed collector told me that the bats chew off the pulp and drop the seeds. One mystery solved.
