Be inspired by this rare footage of an adult fruit bat sweeping in to the rescue of her lost baby bat. The baby bat was found lost and stranded almost two hours prior to this reunion it was amazing to see that the parent was around the area and was so quick to pick up on her baby's calls for help and fly around us. It took her about 2 minutes to get to her baby as she flew in circles trying to accurately pinpoint where her baby was and negotiate her way to him. We stayed a distance away as we watched in excitement hoping for the reunion to be a success.
We thank Mr Joel Guglietta for his genuine concern and eagerness to help us in ensuring that the baby bat is safely contained prior to our arrival. Every animal is important to us and we hope this video will highlight how wonderful these animals are and how a little help can go a long way in making sure that they stay safe.
