Mojang has just announced that Minecraft's next large update will be focused on caves. This update has some incredible new features, but lacks anything to do with Minecraft's oldest cave mobs - bats! Bats can't do anything in Minecraft. You can't even put them on leashes. In real life bats are some of the most fascinating and complex organisms in the world, so this strikes me as a missed opportunity. Here are some suggestions:

>Bats, for all their strengths, are major disease carriers. Maybe there could be a small chance to find a rabid bat in caves, who could poison you for a few seconds?

>Certain bats could come to the surface at night and fly around in big swarms. Since Minecraft doesn't have mosquitos for the bats to eat, perhaps they could take on Phantoms?

>In real life, bats are very important pollinators. Make them interact with flowers somehow. Maybe allow them to be domesticated in a similar way to 1.15's bees?

>Bats should drop something. Maybe bat wings that can be crafted into leather like rabbit hide, or maybe used to repair elytra? And maybe these could be used to craft a heart-shaped firework, like Batman's Bat Signal.

>In real life bats prey on small animals. Maybe they could attack unguarded chickens or even some of the new cave mobs, like axolotls.
