      I’ve never been “attacked” by bats in a cave—I expect the bats think that’s what the CAVERS are doing! You WILL get the occasional bat that “forgets how to bat” and slams right into you. Prolly a bit like heading to the bathroom in the middle of the night and stumbling into something that isn’t normally there! 😉
