    Default Bat nursed back to health after mum drops her in flight

    One-week-old Cruella may look a bit scary but in reality she is highly vulnerable.
    The baby brown long-eared bat in the care of Secret World Wildlife Rescue at East Huntspill near Highbridge in Somerset, was found by a member of the public in Minehead after it is believed her mother dropped her during flight.
    Having been assessed by vets, Cruella will undergo rehabilitation at the rescue centre as one of more than 400 wildlife casualties to be cared for by the charity each year.

    Cruella might look scary, but she is a highly vulnerable baby long eared bat being cared for at a wildlife rescue service

    Debbie O'Keefe, of Secret World, said: 'The biggest challenge is getting her to self feed and keep muscle condition to sustain flight for long periods of time.'
    Cruella is predicted to be flying within four weeks and could be released by the end of the summer.

    Cruella's ears will move to the top of her head as she grows and learns to fly, with her release into the wild possible by the end of summer

    Poor little babe! It is a wonder she didn't get stepped on, so tiny!

    Poor baby. I can't get over how small it is either! Any idea on how old it is?

    Ah, I skimmed right over the very first words of the post when I reread to see how old it was. Thanks.
