When we think of bats, the word “adorable” isn’t typically the first one to come to mind. But the video above may have changed all that.
When a litter of baby bats lost their mother to a heat wave, caretakers at the Australian Bat Clinic and Wildlife Trauma Centre took them in and provided all the nurturing they needed to survive and grow up healthy and happy. While the noble task is amazing enough on its own, what makes this story even better is that we get to see how cute and cuddly bats can be when wrapped in tiny little swaddles.
Go ahead, and call us selfish. But first, check out the video above for yourself and see if you’re not singing the same tune.
