One might think that all flying animals get the knack of it from the first go, but that is not quite how it goes. Surely you didn’t run the moment you got up on your feet. So when this nocturnal creature tried to fly on her own for the first time, things almost didn’t end well for her.

Wildlife rescuer Denise Wade found Pamela, a young flying fox, after the tiny creature, a “first flyer”, crashed into a glass panel and became concussed. At her organisation Batzilla the Bat, Wade rehabilitates injured flying foxes. She said Pamela will recuperate at her home, before being re-released into the wild.

In this video, Pamela exhibits her ability to defend herself by using her claws and sharp teeth.

On Batzilla the Bat’s Facebook page they say that the orphaned flying-foxes arrive into their care for many different reasons but the main problems are the death of their mothers following car hits, dog attacks, barbed wire and netting entrapment and electrocution on power lines where mum is killed but 99% of babies survive the electrocution and can be successfully hand raised and released.

Sometimes mothers accidentally drop their babies and whenever they rescue an infant near a feed tree and the baby is in good shape, they attempt a reunion.

This tiny blossom bat lest its mother after she got attacked by a cat. The good people from a local bat nursery near Brisbane, Australia, took the baby and nursed it until it was ready to fly on its own.
