The WHTM Pledge Drive is ending today! BIG THANKS to everyone who donated!

We’re celebrating!

By David Futrelle

Today is the last day of the September 2018 We Hunted the Mammoth Pledge drive! HUGE THANKS to everyone who has donated. You folks make this blog possible, and it really means a lot — especially now that we’ve gone ad-free.

If you’re a fan of this blog and you haven’t donated yet, please make a little clicky on this thing here and send a few bucks (or a lot of bucks) my way.

You don’t even need a PayPal account, and if you’re not in the US, your currency will be converted to dollars automatically. There’s a monthly donation option as well if you’d rather give that way.

If you can’t swing a donation right now, please consider helping out the blog in some other way — by promoting posts (and/or this pledge drive) on social media, by jumping into the comments and helping the community grow, by sending tips my way. There are all sorts of ways to help out, and they are all appreciated enormously.

If you’d like to make a donation but want to avoid PayPal, please drop me a note at and I can give you an alternative. I will also be putting up a Patreon soon.

THANKS AGAIN to everyone who donated! And EQUALLY BIG THANKS to all of you who donate between pledge drives as well. You are all heroes in my book.

Thank you for ALL that you do. I’m able to contribute a little this time, and I’m happy for all you do here (as are we all)!


Nice bat gif. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one close-up before. It makes me feel kind of foolish for running in panic from them.

I knew a girl at university who had a tame bat. Their fur is amazingly soft (usual caveats about not handling wild animals if you’re in North America or anywhere rabies exists.)

I have actually seen a bat up close; there are a lot of them around my family’s summer place in BC, and one day while we were moving wood around to construct an extension to the boathouse, we discovered a bat had gone to sleep curled up in the little gap on top of the 2x4s and between the wall of the boathouse and the sheets of flake board leaned up against it. The bat was all curled up and cute, though not happy that we’d woken them up by moving the boards away.

Back on topic, I really do need to add some of my own support, even if the pledge drive is technically over now.
