Brace yourselves, it’s time for another visit to the Department of Debilitatingly Awesome Cuteness as we meet Blossom the bat in Queensland, Australia:
Blossom is a Blossom Bat who was rescued after a suspected cat attack and taken to Bat Conservation & Rescue Queensland where, if these photos are any indication, she was lovingly cared for by Louise Saunders.
“Blossom Bats are nectar specialists which feed and groom themselves with the aid of their long tongues. They are known to hover in front of flowers as they forage and are important pollinators of many rainforest plants. A baby at the time of arrival, the little bat was fed a nectar mix recipe and the occasional milk formula. Blossom gradually gained weight and began to practice flying during the night. Often she would dart in and out of rooms and even hover above Louise as she slept before retiring to her little brown bag at dawn.”
We’re pleased to report that the impossibly cute Blossom completely recovered and was eventually released back into the wild on Macleay Island in Queensland, Australia.
