Fluffy bird


This year the long tailed bat won the vote for Bird of The Year in New Zealand. It’s meant to remind people that the bats are endangered and have every bit at much right to be protected and admired as birds.

I mean, some people call bats 'sky puppies' and that's not wrong?

Here in NZ, we have 3 kinds of animals. Farm animals, birds, and sea creatures. We don't farm it, so it must be a bird.

Just don't eat one. We don't need that again.

The annual Bird of the Year competition a fun tongue-in-cheek event whose real purpose is, as was said, raising awareness of endangered animals.
Of course, if the long-tailed bat self-identifies as Aves, then who are we to force it to be Mammalia? In any case, it flies a lot better than the majority of the local species who were born as birds...

Bats certainly are endangered in New Zealand if they were kicked out of Mammalia and had to find refuge in Aves.

If there is one animal I wish could be currently domesticated, it's the fruit bat.

Seriously, normal rats have been domesticated and are awesome pets. Add wings to the little squeakers and they just become more adorable! We need pet bats!
