It’s summer in Australia and extreme heat is causing bats’ brains to fry. Hundreds of bats dropped from the trees in Sydney, Australia as their brains fried due to temperatures that rose up to 117 degrees, the hottest temperature recorded since 1939. As of Monday, 204 dead bats whose brains had boiled have been found and collected. Hundreds more remained unreachable in the trees, according to Help Save the Wildlife and Bushlands in Campbelltown, the group that organized the rescue and body collection effort.
