An adorable tube-nosed bat is recovering at a Queensland bat sanctuary after she got trapped in a barbed wire fence, recently shared video shows.
The footage was posted online by Denise Wade, who has been caring for injured baby bats for more than a decade, and shows little Talia feeding by syringe.
Wade said that the 46-gram critter was a juvenile who was injured after she found herself tangled on a barbed wire fence. She said that Eastern tube-nosed bats were prone to such struggles.
“Although her wounds are a work in progress we are hopeful that she can be returned to the wild,” Wade said.
