Some Dad tweetz:
Someone is well prepared in Aldi Ballymun. This is not one of the bats they are selling.
UPDATE: bat origin dispute (see comments).
Wholly rebranded Batman! From 1941 to 2007.
All animal cosplay can now end.
Purrfection has been attained.
Batworld Sanctuary sez:
Lil’ Drac is an orphaned short tailed fruit bat (Carollia perspicillata). His mother was yet another casualty from zoo closures which are occurring across the US. Sheis 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.
It’s OK. The giant hands know what they’re doing.
Youtuber maumau1968 (from Solway on the Scottish coast) sez:
Over a 4 night period I saw the same seagull sitting on the roof of next door neighbour devouring bat after bat that flew from inside the roof. My uncle and I have never seen anything like this before.
