Baby Bat...Cute??

Have u ever see baby bat before...if not...u lucky coz i have it picture below. Are they cute????
Bats are the only flying mammals, they use sound to locate their prey, and they live a very long time for such small animals. Oregon does not have spectacular congregations of thousands of bats like those found in Texas caves. The species found here are varied and interesting, but either solitary or found in small colonies.

While bats in other parts of the world feed on fruit, fish, nectar, or even blood, all Oregon bats dine on insects. They consume pests such as spruce budworm moths, tussock moths, mosquitoes, pine bark beetle moths and gypsy moths. A bat can catch up to 600 insects in an hour.

People who mean no harm to bats often do not understand how vulnerable bats are to disturbance of their roosting sites. Thus these beneficial and harmless animals have been killed or have been unable to reproduce enough to maintain their numbers. While accurate counts of these small, nocturnal, and widely distributed animals are very difficult, there is evidence that some species are declining.
