If Bruce Wayne were really committed to accuracy, he’d spend his time licking food from a plastic cup, getting scritched, and generally being pants-pissingly adorable. At least, that’s what Blossom the baby blossom bat does, and she is now my new archetype of bat behavior.
Blossom was rescued after what was probably a cat attack and raised by Louise Saunders of Bat Conservation and Rescue Queensland. She was eventually released into the wild, but not before winning Saunders’ heart, and now she can win yours too. Just try to resist this face.
