new roomies

two …roomies have just moved in with me. it’s only temporary – for the weekend, i was told.
oh, by the way, i’m talking about two BABY BATS! :grin::grin:

they’re the cutest things ever: a 4-week-old serotine bat (eptesicus serotinus, breitflügelfledermaus), and a newborn common pipistrelle (pipistrellus pipistrellus, zwergfledermaus) which is only about 2cm in size.
the mortality rate of very young bats is high, but i’m hoping i’ll pull it through.

i need to get up and feed them around 03:30, so i’ll better go to bed now.

tomorrow i’ll try to take some pictures…
