If you want to play a hilarious prank on new Caretakers, have them try to sneak up on a Bat Dragon. It's practically impossible; with their hyper-keen senses and echolocation, they are constantly aware of all of their surroundings. A young Caretaker tip-toeing behind a Bat Dragon may as well be a charging bull elephant.
Bat Dragons have a particularly strange way of eating fruit that is disconcerting to new Caretakers. Before biting off a piece of the fruit, Bat Dragons sink their fangs in the fruit and suck out all of the juice. Sometimes, they won't even bother to eat the fruit after this, leaving discarded, dried-out fruit husks around their habitat.
Many rumors and legends surround the Bat Dragon. Ancient Caretakers believed the Bat Dragon to be evil Caretakers from generations past... but it's not true. Bat Dragons are actually pretty swell creatures! They just have a sinister reputation due to their vampiric-like methods of eating fruit.
Epic Bat Dragons are certainly scary creatures, with their sharp claws, long fangs, and impressive wingspan. However, it's fear of the Epic Bat Dragons that keeps dragons in line, and other fearsome beasts away from the Dragon Islands' shores. Epic Bat Dragons aren't the hero that the Dragon Isle wants, but it's the hero that the Dragon Isle needs.
