General reference pic:

The leaf is exactly 2 inches long, the bats themselves are about 3/4 of an inch, each.  The back of the leaf has a loop to make this a pendant on a necklace.  Sketched the design last night.  Now I just have to make the cord and beads for the rest of the necklace.  Aye.

I'm up for personal swaps, as well as commissions, and everything I make is for sale.  Ask me about stuff: [email protected]

I need BONES.  I will pay $$ for defleshed bones, skulls.  I will pay for shipping of other things (such as roadkill).  I will pay big bucks for cool dead stuff.  Smiley

What an interesting idea... will make an amazing pendant too.   Is that a tube hole on the back of the leaf?... if so, are you planning to run the cording through there??

(At first, I didn't quite understand the second photo and thought you had done a second set of bat-lets using Garie Sim's technique with fuzzy stuff like bumpy pipe cleaners or pompons for the bodies of critters, with clay faces, breast plates, hands, etc., like this:

Now I see that it was a photo of some real ones!  ...oops. Cheesy)

Those bats are adorable.  Plus, they're small enough to enter into the Teeny Tiny Challenge!

Aww, yet more adorable stuff! Do you ever sleep? Wink

I second the notion that this will make a fabulous pendant. You should definately enter this into the challenge!

Northern ghost bats (Diclidurus albus) ( http://www.merlintuttle.com/2014/02/05/northern-ghost-bat-2 ) are solitary, rare and notoriously difficult to find. They prefer humid habitats like the areas around the lake and river in Carara national park wich is remarkable for its diversity because of its location in the transition zone between the southern rain forests and northern dry forests of Costa Rica.

Bats are mammals which are unique of their kinds; they carry a strange aggressive look for which people think of them as scary creatures. But they are very gentle creatures and are helpful to our environment. So building a bat house and installing it close to your home can lead to good conservation and maintain a healthy natural environment in your surrounding area.

Personally, I've been using a very helpful resource for my bat house building plans. You may check it out here: http://www.merlintuttle.com/bat-house-builders-handbook
