9. Bats are actually adorable
Just look at that face. Is that the face of a terrifying, blood-sucking demon? No. Adult Mexican free-tailed bats have oversized ears and little wrinkly faces, not unlike those of terrier puppies. In fact, baby bats are actually called “pups.” When grounded, Mexican free-tails behave a lot like rodents, sniffing at the air and intelligently surveying their surroundings. Once airborne, they squeak! You just think they’re ugly flying beasties. We promise, they’re not.
