Boom! Bats always seem to get a bit of a bad rap during Halloween , but who couldn't love a face like this? Bats can be useful pollinators and pest controllers and their poop makes great fertiliser!

It's a festival of lights, so let your light shine like these amazing native creatures — the New Zealand glow worms at Waitomo.
