So squishy and furry. Just like the Lovely R. The Auckland Zoo is breeding these endangered endemic bats so yay for them. Read more about it here. I love bats and have been lucky enough to see great clouds of flying foxes (not strictly bats, I know, and they do eat your fucking mangoes) and handle Australian chiroptera while I lived in Arnhem Land. I'm not sure which species, but it was one of these guys; I think it might have been the Common Sheathtail Bat or another species of Emballonuridae.
I know they're vectors for some pretty gross diseases, but so are people. I regret nothing.
