My journalistic hero Hunter S. Thompson in his twenties. Aw. <3
And what do you think – another bat. This one is mighty big: the second biggest bat you can find in Lithuania. The bat seems to be okay, however, for some reason he won’t fly away. We tried warming him up and carrying outside, as well as leaving hanging on a wall in our balcony during the night – still no good. Let’s hope he will feel better and will go back to the wild.
One more little fella we’ve met – a baby bunny.
Q:How's your bat?
As already mentioned, unfortunately, he is with us no more. Poor guy had some problems with his stomach, it seemed, and passed away. It’s incredibly difficult to raise somebody as tiny and fragile as a bat, even a grown up one, so we’d have preferred to give him to professional care but there was nobody available, so we did what we could.
As promised, another friend from the wilderness we were able to meet – this time for a very short time. I don’t know the story of how he was caught, however, the vet said this guy is good to go free and as we live in a rather rural area, we were entitled to release him.
Of course, before doing so I couldn’t help taking a few pictures. As you can see, the eagle owl wasn’t too much against that. He was a lot against meeting our dog and ruffled the feathers and started hissing – however, we were too busy laughing to take a picture of that. :}
Afterwards this young beauty flew away, scaring the shit out of local birds.
Q:Darling, bats naturally carry rabies, and you can get them from literAlly just touching it. Please be careful.
As far as I know, you can only get it if the bat bites you. But thank you for the warning!
Q:Pls show us the process of the bat growing :D
I am very upset to tell this but the little bat guy didn’t make it. :( There must have been something with the food – he was okay and very suddenly things got worse and our friend went to the bats’ heaven. It’s very difficult to raise a delicate and small creature like this – he was fed every few hours, however, something was wrong. It would have been better to give him to the professionals, however, there weren’t anyone in our area. However, I think soon I will post a happier story about one very beautiful creature we also met. :}
I thought I would show you a little buddy we are raising at home after he got lost from his mommy. Meet a tiny baby bat who has no name yet and hopefully will survive and grow up to be a super awesome grown up bat. ;}
