*Handling bats is ONLY for trained professionals. DO NOT attempt to handle a bat on your own!
I’m absolutely batty for baby bats! Are you too?
While all animals in need deserve rescuing, some are more challenging to rescue than others. Baby bats are extremely fragile and they also carry diseases that can be passed on to humans. Trained professionals who receive special immunizations are the ONLY ONES that can safely handle the little creatures. PLEASE remember this if you are to ever come across a bat who needs help. The best thing you can do is to call for assistance!
Here are three rescue baby bat videos to make your day a little better!
Meet a rescue baby bat who loves a little massage and his favorite pacifier. OMG! I never knew a bat could be this cute!!!
Just the other day, someone asked me what my favorite type of snack is. You know what my answer was? A baby bat burrito, of course 😉 These tiny orphan baby bats, being cared for by a trained professional, are melting my heart! The volunteer wraps them up tightly like a little burrito to give them comfort and love.
Baby bats can also be “raised” by other bats. With the help of volunteers to eat and get their specific needs met, they are often placed with older bats to learn how to be… bats! Their goal is to get them used to one another, and bat-life, so they can be released back into the wild. The human rescuers are careful not to interact more than they have to so that the bats aren’t too used to human contact. Usually, the older bats that remain in the sanctuary are deemed unfit to enter back into the wild due to medical conditions and injuries that have not properly healed.
No matter the animal, all species deserve love and a real shot at a quality life. Baby bats are no exception! Aren’t they adorable?
