Bellaboo is a most unusual bat.  While other bats sleep during the day, he is wide awake.  While other bats hang upside down from the ceiling, Bellaboo walks on the floor.  And, while other bats eat bugs, Bellaboo is quite a good cook.  He likes to draw and climb and play.  He is very good at sliding and jumping.  Mother and Father Bat don’t know what to do with Bellaboo.  But he makes them smile and you will too, when you visit Bellaboo’s Play and Discovery Center at Three Rivers County Park in Lake Station, Indiana.  Bellaboo's is another fine facility of the Lake County Parks and Recreation Department.
