It doesn't have to be Halloween to wear this fantastic pin!
These gorgeous and unusual bat pins are made in Washington and Idaho by a team of U.S. artists. The high-quality lapel pins or oversized tie tacks are unique. They are exquisitely detailed; the quality of the painting elevates each pin to an item of wearable art. Each one is cast in pewter and painted by hand. You will be delighted with the professional quality and artistic details of your piece of fish jewelry. The finish is extremely smooth and shiny, as you can see by the highlight from the scanner. It is also extremely durable. The pin is secured by two sturdy tacks on the back so it stays upright, and the finished product is not only beautiful, but satisfyingly substantial in weight. It can be used as a lapel pin, hat pin, tie tack, and more. This collectible animal pin is heirloom quality, and the details are so realistic, they are found in museum gift shops and bought by organizations in need of the perfect animal to represent their group.
The only mammal capable of true, sustainable flight, bats represent about 20% of all classified mammal species. About 70% of bats are insectivores, with most of the rest feeding predominantly on fruit. Very few species are non-insect carnivores, and the infamous vampire bat representing the only parasitic mammalian species.
Bats attain flight through a specialized webbing of skin between their legs and forward digits. Bats are capable of highly acrobatic and fast flight, in contrast to other "flying" mammals, such as flying squirrels, which glide rather than fly.
Bats feature prominently in popular fiction, folklore, and heraldry. The modern-day coat-of-arms of several Spanish and French cities feature bats, as well as the insignia of Royal Valentcia Yacht Club and two Spanish football clubs. The U.S. states of Texas, Oklahoma, and Virginia each have a official state bat.
