The Bat Man of Mexico

YEAR: 2014 | LENGTH: 1 part (39 minutes)  |  SOURCE: BBC

description:

David Attenborough narrates the story of Rodrigo Medellin. Since he first kept vampire bats in his bathroom as a child, Rodrigo has dedicated his life to saving them. Now Mexico’s most famous export, tequila, is at stake. Rodrigo’s beloved lesser long-nosed bat is crucial to the liquor – pollinating the plants the drink is made from. To save both, Rodrigo must track the bats’ epic migration across Mexico – braving hurricanes, snakes, Mayan tombs and seas of cockroaches. The threats are very real for not only Rodrigo and the bats, but also for anyone with a taste for tequila.
