Flexible Frootbat Friday

So a short while ago we showed you this photo of Devi, mid-head shake.  You can see how our frootbat ears are very flexible!  No foolin'!  Our ears really do move like this!

For those of you unfamiliar with the flexibility of frootbat ears. we thought we would make a little video for you.  Here is Dragonheart, in slow motion, shaking his head.  You can really see how flexible our ears are!

If you have trouble viewing the video, you can try watching it here.

Also, our mom has some more photos of us shaking our heads, with our frootbat ears flying.  We all look a little silly in these, though.  Devi seems to take the best ear photos out of all of us.  We think that's because she is very expressive with her ears, even when she's not shaking her head.
