It's not just us humans but all the species understand and crave for the support and love of a mother. Same goes for these baby fruit bats who have lost their mothers either because of illness or just absence for some reason. However, it is more than comforting to know that a hospital takes in hundreds of such baby bats to take care of them, heal them and release back into the wild once they are healthy again.
A major disease that hunts down thousands of bats every year is called tick paralysis. However, the bats are fortunate enough that kindhearted people in Tolga Bat Hospital in Australia nurse them and take proper care of them. From their diet to health and curing the disease, they take responsibility of everything and treat them like human babies. It is wonderful to see their spirit and true affection for the animals that drive them to devote their time, attention and skill only to comfort miserable animals.
