And scientists have just discovered something amazing about them - bats use leaves as "mirrors" that reflect sound waves, helping them find insects hiding behind leaves. Cool, right? Or confusing? Keep on reading, we'll explain everything.

The only thing cuter than a bat wrapped up in a blanket is a bat eating a banana while wrapped in a blanket.

Watch as this little guy tries to enjoy his breakfast while the camera gets all up in his face.

He’s like “nothing to see here, just getting some potassium in me before my big nap.”

He could at least be polite and close his mouth while he eats.

Never before have little flying demons looked so cute.

After losing their mother in the extreme heat event in Australia, these baby bats were rescued and taken in by the Australian Bat Clinic for rehabilitation.


Part of their care involves swaddling them in tiny blankets and giving them tiny pacifiers until they are old enough to go back out into the wild.
