I saw this on the news tonight so I just had to share it with you. As all of you know Australia has been receiving so much rain. A lot of animals are being displaced with the flooding including bats. When people think of bats it is with the thought of vampires, however, bats are so beneficial to our eco system. We love to see the bats fly around here in the summer as we know it means fewer mosquitoes!
When I went on the web to read the full story it is quite interesting. The Australian bat clinic are keeping these baby bat in these blankets hanging on clothes lines, and feeding them until they are able to go out on their own again. So far they have saved 130 of them.
Now I know bats are not the prettiest things, but they look kinda cute here don't they?
