I learn something new every day

Landon got a bat in his happy meal - not the kind I can sue for, but a stuffed toy one.  Also, the mammal kind, not the baseball kind.
He asked me if I was afraid of bats.  I said I was afraid of pet bats (mostly because I don't want him thinking he could get a pet bat and I would be fine with it.)  And I mentioned that I didn't particularly care for the bats that are out in the day time since those are the ones who tend to have rabies.
He announced that his bat was turnal.  Because if he's not "notturnal" (nocturnal), he must be "turnal." A turnal bat = a day time bat.
