Roy Horst has spent most of his career studying natural and exotic wildlife in the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii, with special emphasis on bats and the introduced and destructive small Indian mongoose. The last two fall semesters he has talked about the mammals in our area, with only time enough to mention some “unexpected visitors.” This semester he is discussing this topic in more detail.
