Did you know that baby bats are also known as ‘pups’ and carried under their mum’s wings? These broad nosed bats came into the RSPCA hospital after trees were felled in Hillcrest. They were looked after by a wildlife carer before being released in a nearby area to start a new life.
Another rare visitor to the RSPCA Wildlife Hospital was the white striped freetail bat!
