This orphaned baby bat is the cutest thing you'll see all day

If you're eating pancakes right now, don't even bother pouring on the syrup. This is the sweetest thing you'll see all day, nay, all week. This is the tale of Lil' Drac, an orphaned short-tailed fruit bat who was raised by the folks at Bat World Sanctuary. Here's his biography:

His mother was yet another casualty from zoo closures which are occurring across the US. She is a young mother who was stressed from the conditions in which she was kept, combined with the additional trauma of being captured and transferred to a new and unfamiliar environment. Consequently, she abandoned Lil' Drac after he was born. He was found on the padded floor of the indoor flight enclosure at Bat World Sanctuary, curled up in a little ball.

I love bats. They are a lot more adorable than people give them credit for. I think I am going to build some bat houses for the coming spring.
