Spook mythology says all sorts of flying creatures will be out and about, getting up to their spine-chilling business. So do search the skies for wind-borne witches, skeletons at twice the speed of sound and cloud-busting crones. ——————————————————————————————————1/6—— Travel back in time on page 667 MEGA-ZINE: IT'S YOUR SHOUT p142 Motors Recipe Love Stars Events

Normally they're not that crowded. Along with owls, bats are probably the most well-known custodians of the night sky. They arouse love and fear in equal measure and their reputation is largely and unfairly founded on Hammer horror films and vampire legends. ——————————————————————————————————2/6—— See Weekend Money for cash help 520 NOW IT'S EVEN EASIER TO FIND LOVE: TELETEXT DATING ITV p390 Motors Recipe Love Stars Events

And, in a perfectly spooky combination for Halloween, woolly bats from west Africa actually live in spiders' webs. ——————————————————————————————————4/6—— Nick can ease teenage heartache 146 WIN TICKETS TO SEE BARNEY >>> Motors Recipe Love Stars Events

But the reality is that they adopt orphan bats and even risk their lives to share food with hungry roost-mates. Vampire bat saliva may soon provide an anti-coagulant to treat heart patients - and because they're not blind, bats aren't really prone to getting entangled in your hair. ——————————————————————————————————5/6—— Does your pet have a problem?
