Think Bats Are Scary? Well These Orphaned Baby Bat “Pups” Are Absolutely Adorable!
The Australian Bat Clinic & Wildlife Trauma Centre in Australia’s Gold Coast is an orphanage for baby bats whose mother’s have died.
They also treat adult bats afflicted by mites or other diseases.
The bat babies, known as pups, are wrapped in baby blankets to replicate the warm embrace of their mother’s wings.
Australia is home to almost 100 different bat species, and between 25 and 30 of them reside in the region where the Australian Bat Clinic is located.
While many see bats as scary creatures – ‘flying rats’ some may say – these adorable little pups are out to disprove any Halloween-inspired qualms people have about them.
