As I’ve mentioned in earlier bat posts, I really had never found bats to be all that cute, but the more pictures I see of them, the more I realize how dreadfully wrong I was!
Take this little friendly bat, for example. Have you ever seen animal ears do their very own choreography? I think not. Did you ever see such fuzziness, such sweet eyes, and such a goofy nose? Oh my goodness, I would love to meet this little bat buddy.

Normally, I must admit, I’m not really all that into bats. However, how could I possibly not say awwwwww when looking at these little buddies? They are truly adorable; just look at how cute their ears, eyes, noses are! Look at all that fuzziness! I see that I was indeed very wrong about bats. These guys definitely deserve a spot on ACAD, so here they are. Enjoy!

My sister sent me this video today. It’s absolutely adorable and you must see it! This little bat was hand-raised by the Bat World Sanctuary after his mother abandoned him. This has to be the sweetest little bat I have ever seen. A special thanks to my sister for the adorable link. It’s bound to make you smile.

Bats are really neat animals. They are the only mammals that can actually fly. They don’t fly in the same way as birds though. Birds flap their entire forelimbs and have very small digits (their equivalent of fingers) whereas bats’ wings are mainly made up of their digits. You can see this at Bat vs. Bird Wings.
There are many other cool things about bats which you can read about here from Wikipedia’s article.
Although bats are really interesting animals, I have always been a bit spooked by them, to be honest. However, there are some super cute bats out there like this little fruit bat here. Isn’t he super goofy? I love his nose and ears. That fruit looks way too huge for him to eat though.
