When you think of cute animals, it’s likely you think of puppies, kittens, and baby sloths. The internet is brimming with videos of these cuties, and we have to admit, we could watch them for hours. Not all animals get as much love from the public, though. Take bats, for instance. These nocturnal creatures are associated with all things ominous – pitch black nights, Halloween, and blood-sucking vampires.
As scary as these mammals may seem on T.V. and in movies, there is actually very little to fear about these little guys in real life! The rescued baby bat from Fly By Night Bat Clinic in the video above, for example, looks absolutely adorable using his feet to munch on some banana slices. It’s hard to be terrified of these creatures when you see them in this light. Not only are bats not as scary as we paint them to be, but they play an integral role in our global ecosystem, helping to control pest populations and pollinating many of the foods we eat every day.
Share this post to raise awareness about bats and help dispel any wrongful myths that people may have about them. After all, we need bats as much as they need us!
