Usually we think of bats as creatures that only come out at night. But now, in broad daylight, the YouTube channel Wakaleo has captured footage of baby bats being swaddled (thus, resembling burritos) at the Australian Bat Clinic & Wildlife Trauma Centre, based in the Gold Coast hinterland at Advancetown in Queensland, Australia.

The organization rescues, feeds and provides medical care to baby bats who have become orphans, often after their mothers have died from tick paralysis.

Animal lovers can also see “baby bat burritos” at the Tolga Bat hospital in Atherton, Queensland, Australia, which offers tours of the facility to visitors.
