Some animals are just so ugly that they are cute.
Here's a video of a tiny bat named Frank being raised by wildlife rehabilitators in Australia, happily munching on mealworms.
The good folks at Wildlife Rockhampton had this to say about the little guy on their Facebook page:
"Adorable little Frank is a white-striped free-tailed bat. Amazingly enough, he was dropped by a crow right beside one of our very own carers as they made their way to work one morning last week. As a micro bat, his body length is only about 6cm, and his diet consists entirely of insects. In this video he's thoroughly enjoying a mealworm Many people don't know how important micro bats are to our environment - here in Australia they help keep the mosquitoes and insect population to a minimum, allowing us to better enjoy our outdoor lifestyle. Thanks Frank for your hard work! We'll get you back to the wild as soon as possible."
How cute is little Frank?!
