What a great video. Thanks for sharing. It is hard to realize something so tiny can be so fascinating. I was amazed to see the use of a piece of foam to feed the little guy. I would have thought he could choke on it. What a special animal.

Sweet little guy. I love the bats...they do their ballet in my garden every night in summer...they are graceful beautiful animals.
