Batty about bats

Okay, so I'm not a fan of Twilight (I got half way through the first film, just to see what all the fuss was about, and then ended up doing something else - like turning it off), but I do LOVE bats.  They are flying mice.  Which is amazing.  Now, if mice freak you out, then odds are that mice with the gift of wing-flapping flight are going to freak you out a whole lot more, so I understand that bats aren't for everybody.  However, I've always loved them (and their ugly/sweet faces), and I find them really magical in the evenings.  To me, they're kind of like midnight robins - it's always a bit of an event when you see one.

So, when I came across this cute video on the Not One Sparrow website (original blog post here), I naturally felt the need to spread the joy to fellow fans of the critters.  It's so inspiring to see people care for tiny creatures like this.  (Note: Amazon do not sell tiny orphaned baby bats to care for - I've checked.  And even if they did, that wouldn't be very vegan, now, would it?  Shame on you...)

So, are you a fan of the bat, or do you think they're the thing of nightmares?  Let the debate begin!

Peace and love
