Bat Cone

Baghdad, Iraq
1 of 1Carolina Vargas

This unusual looking cone-shaped structure was once a pigeon cove located on the grounds of a palace former Iraqi dictator Sadaam Hussein built for one of his mistresses. Today the palace is a U.S. Army post called Camp Liberty (formerly known as Camp Victory North) and the pigeon cove is now a home to a colony of bats.

The cone-shaped bat house is rather large. It’s said that when the sun goes down, hundreds of bats stream out from the bat house to go about their nightly bug-eating rounds.
