A juvenile fruit bat rescued by a wildlife carer eagerly consumed its fruit smoothie on Tuesday, January 31, as it was carefully administered through a syringe.

The young fruit bat – also called a flying fox – was just one of the many in the species who get into trouble when they try to make it on their own.

“It takes time to develop street smarts and flight manoeuvrability and sadly, some [juveniles] make fatal mistakes and they must be euthanised or they die alone in a tree,” carer Denise Wade told Storyful.
