I really hate when animals start out freaking adorable as babies and then turn into scary ugly creatures. It’s kind of like when you see the previews for a movie and you decide you’re really excited about seeing it but once you actually see the whole movie you hate your life for looking forward to it for so long. That analogy works right?These pictures of the Common Long-Eared Bat have taught me to cherish the fleeting moments of cuteness baby bats bring because before long you’re stuck with the adult version that completely sucks in comparison.
