Have you ever seen a baby bat before?!
This tiny little youngster (seriously, he's only 2cm long!) is a juvenile pipistrelle, and he needed a little help after being found alone on a pathway. At this age, young bats should still be clinging to their mother, so he was definitely not having a good day!
Arriving cold and quite dehydrated, he was gently warmed (a vital step before rehydration or feeding) before being given Oralade oral rehydration solution to correct his dehydration.
Once a little more stable this little youngster was transferred into the capable hands of Steve from Surrey Bat Rescue who will give him the best possible chance!
