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.

β€œIt 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.
