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.

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.

Well to be fair, I suppose they don't really have feathers... but what I'm trying to say is they stick together, in the most adorably literal way possible!

Keep on reading, we'll explain everything.

These large bats, in fact the largest bats in the world, are known as "flying foxes." But are they cute like foxes, or creepy like bats? Let me know what you think!
