STOP EVERYTHING – and watch this cute bat munching on melon
If you’re in the “bats are creepy” camp, we defy you to watch this video of a flying fox, also known as a fruit bat, being hand-fed a big chunk of watermelon, then tell us it isn’t cute.
Just a bat eating watermelon… pic.twitter.com/zYfN1mc4kU

This should help you all to return to a calmer state. Who needs Stoicism when you can have a bat eating watermelon. Who needs anything at al, other than the bat eating watermelon. https://t.co/a6C6FWbNam

Actor, Helen Ayres shared a similar clip, this time of fruit bat, Hope, chomping on a banana like there’s no tomorrow.
This is Hope, a 13-week-old bat.
She certainly loves her banana – just look at the amount she packs in! ☺️
