Just a little batty

Zeke the baby Variable Flying Fox was born recently at Lubee Bat Conservancy.

Bats make up one fifth of all  mammals (1,116 species). They are among the most endangered of the world's creatures, primarily because much of their habitat has been eliminated by human encroachment or because they are over hunted for food or persecuted as pests or disease carriers. Their loss has serious consequences for the ecosystems to which they belong because bats are important seed dispersers and pollinators for many native flowering plants, and key insect predators globally.

Zeke, you are such a cutie. We had no idea that bats make up one-fifth of all the mammals. We always learn something new every day in these posts. Thanks for sharing all the information. Have a wonderful rest of your day.

There is noticeably a bundle to know about this. I assume you made certain nice points in features also.
