I looked back, and you haven’t asked this yet, if it’s any consolation to my long response time! ><
She may well have seen the skull. As the dermis + epidermis can be less than 0.5-1 mm thick along the skull, and as children tend to have very thin subcutaneous fat layers on the forehead, it’s easy for a bat to break through all of the layers that are present. My own brother had the skin on his lower jaw busted straight through around the same age - while it required a few stitches, at least the bones are more resilient than the skin!
I don’t even…what are you talking about? The whole brain? None of it? The brain stem? the cerebrum? I really would…actually, I’m not sure if I want clarification on what you’re asking.
There are a lot of structures in the brain, but unless you’re into squishiness, I don’t think any of them would make particularly good sex toys. Just sayin’?
As much as I love the brain, and am amazed by its powers of rewiring and re-building itself after disaster or to accommodate new input, I’m still more a fan of the liver. The metabolism of toxins is so fascinating…plus there’s the whole “starfish-y” aspect of it, which is nifty as hell.
