Watch the Horrifying Spectacle of Three Million Bats Going Night Hunting

Video: Bats are fascinating creatures — both from the point of scientific research and their place in the canon of the horror genre as spooky creatures of the night. So whether you're a science person or a horror person, this shot of millions of bats streaming into the sky is either great, or great and fearsome. The spectacular footage comes from a recent YouTube video that shows millions of bats emerging from caves in the rainforest of Mulu National Park, in Borneo, Malaysia. Check out the full video below:

It's sort of like watching ribbons undulating in the wind, until you realise that the ribbons are actually made up of millions of hungry bats. Which, like I said, is both an amazing sight and one that might send a chill down your spine.

    Almost like a scene from the first Riddick movie.

    Thats some Jeepers Creepers 2 shit right there.

    Saw something very similar in Cambodia:

    Sorry, but why is this "horrifying"? I'd say it's just simply amazing. I've also seen evening bat swarms, in Sunshine Coast of Australia of all places, and was absolutely transfixed. The person who got to see this in real life was very lucky to see such a spectacle of nature.

    Why do they fly like that? That is really weird.
