This little bat in the video is called Lil’ Drac. Lil’ Drac is an orphan short-tailed bat. His mother was rescued after a shutting of a zoo and the stress caused by the transfer made her abandon her baby. Mothers who feel insecure of their own safety often do this, so it is not so uncommon.
A short time after his desertion, Lil’ Drac was rescued and hand-raised by the volunteers of Bat World Sanctuary, a non-profit organization which is dedicated towards the preservation of bats. He was taken care of and as the days passed the little guy grew stronger.
The population of bats is experiencing a decline as of late. More than half of the native bats in the USA are in danger of extinction.
