Bats are the oft-feared members of the animal kingdom, known for their dark associations (think Halloween and blood sucking), and for their strange noises and tendency to swoop down out of nowhere. Stereotypes aside, bats are actually really interesting creatures -- and up close and personal, they can be just as sweet as the next furry little animal.
This rare video of an adult bat flying to the rescue of her baby is nothing short of heartwarming. After losing her little one for almost two hours, their reunion feels as exciting for the view as it does for the mother. See the absolutely adorable footage below.
