Orphaned baby bat helped by human hands

We didn't think anything could "outcute" the precious video of orphaned baby bats in Australia wrapped in swaddling clothes until we saw this.

The rescue and mothering of a tiny baby bat named Lil' Drac by a team of wildlife rehabilitators at Bat World Sanctuary in Texas.

His young mother was moved as part of a zoo closure. Stressed from the conditions in which she was kept, combined with the additional trauma of being captured and transferred to a new and unfamiliar environment, she abandoned Lil' Drac after he was born.

He was found on the padded floor of the indoor flight enclosure at Bat World Sanctuary, curled up in a little ball. 

Watch as the large fingers nurture the tiny foundling. You will never say "Eeeew a bat again."
