Photo of the day

From the Telegraph’s Animal Photos of the week.  Who knew bats could be so cute?

Wrapped in blankets these are three of the adorable inhabitants of the Tolga Bat Hospital in Australia. The sanctuary was established in 1997 in response to a crisis that saw large numbers of spectacled flying foxes dying. The phenomenon was first noticed in the mid-1980s but it wasn't until 1990 that the cause - paralysis caused by a certain tick - was uncovered.
