Bats. They get a bad rap, don’t they? They’ll fly in my hair! They’ll suck my blood! They have rabies! While there may be the slightest grain of truth in the blood feeding and rabies myths (only 3 species of bat feed on blood, while less than 1% of bats carry the rabies virus), they are certainly not interested in flying near your hair and would much rather eat a piece of yummy fruit or some insects.

To further disprove the unfair reputation our poor bat buddies have been saddled with, we here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of bats being their true selves. We think you’ll agree that they are actually completely adorable! Scroll down to check out the cute pics below, they are sure to change your perceptions about bats forever. Enjoy!

I recognize this lovely little batty, he is a Rainforest Fluffball (not a scientific name), and he and his charming little white-furred, banana-yellow ears buddies have been haunting my homepage with their adorableness for many years.
