For many people, bats have an “evil” association thanks to years of negative folklore surrounding them. During medieval times, they were seen as witches’ familiars, not to mention European legends linking them to vampires. But all of that is simply fiction, and shouldn’t affect how we view bats today. A recent video from Acres Wildlife Rescue Team captured the love between a mother fruit bat and her baby, and after witnessing their display there’s no way you could think bats are evil.
The baby bat was rescued just two hours before this reunion happened, and everyone involved was thankful that the mother was still in the area and ready to take back her young. The next time you see a scary Halloween decoration featuring a bat, you won’t be able to help thinking of the love that these remarkable little creatures show for each other.
