A vampire bat returned to its cave covered in blood. This led other bats to believe he must have found food, but unknown to them, he unknowingly bashed himself against a tree.
A vampire bat flew back to its cave after going round in search of food throughout the night. On his return, his body was covered in fresh blood.
Tired and worn out from his adventure, the bat retired to the cave's roof, where he tried to get some sleep.

Shortly after he arrived, other bats smelled the blood on his body and began to ask him where he got it.
They believed the bat was covered in blood because he found food during his adventure. So they began to pester him about where he got it.

In response, the bat told them to stop harassing him and begged them to let him get some sleep. This, however, fell on deaf ears.
The bats continued to pester him about where he got the blood, but he told them to let him be. The bats, however, refused to give up and persisted in their request. Eventually, the bat covered in blood gave in.
He then told the bats to follow him, and he flew out of the cave with hundreds of bats flying behind him. Happy and excited about the prospects of getting some food, the colony of bats flew down a valley and went across a river.
During their journey, they also flew across a river and went through a forest of trees. Finally, he slowed down. On getting to their destination, all the other bats were happy and excitedly rallied around him.
The bat then pointed to a nearby tree and asked if the others could see it. In response, they all screamed that they could. The bat then looked towards the other bats and calmly gave the reason he was covered in blood. He said:
"Well, I didn't!"
