So we know we posted about the Bat Cave, but this is an actual bat cave with live bats. We received an anonymous submission profiling some of the great research going on around campus. UMD faculty and researchers are studying bats to do research on projects like texture discrimination using echolocation, social influences on foraging in bats, and somatosensory signaling for flight control. The University of Maryland takes its animal research and care extremely seriously, and is accredited by the Association of Assessment and Accreditation Laboratory and Animal Care. Now these little guys are rather sensitive, and we don't want anyone poking around there and accidentally messing with these fellas, so we haven't specified the location of the lab on our map. For science! #umdresearch
So, we know Adele's isn't a huge secret. But seriously people, you act like it's hidden until suddenly the end of the semester comes along and you need to spend those dining points! And then it's impossible to get in. Stop by some time now, and it'll be a lot less crowded. Don't forget to get the special Maryland dessert at the end. Bon appetit!
