Not only humans enjoy Tel Aviv's culinary scene...

so do bats!!!!!!!!

One of the coolest things about Tel Aviv, in my opinion, is the large bat population that can be seen flying around the city at night. Tel Aviv has a large number of ficus (fig) and other fruit trees that feed a large bat population. The bats also feed on the mosquitos, preventing what would be an intolerable mosquito infestation in the city without them. The fruits of the fig tree are in full bloom at the moment and the bats are everywhere, proof that Tel Aviv is a great food city for humans and bats alike.

Here are some pictures I took the other day of figs blooming in the middle of King George St.
