    A video posted on Twitter shows that bats shouldn't be judged by their appearance and vampire image, as they can be cute, charming and pretty too.

    Bats are the only mammals that can fly, and not all of them want to drink your blood.

    A little bat in a video that was captured in Japan, is shown clinging to a person's palm, making funny faces and yawning. 

    These nocturnal creatures help their ecosystems by pollinating flowers and dispersing seeds making various tropical plants entirely dependent on them for these services.

      The Magnificent Dance of the Laysan Albatross

      The albatross is one of the largest birds on the planet - perhaps the most romantic seabird in the wild. The albatross has long been considered a good omen for sailors who see the birds as an auspicious sign, and some believe that albatrosses are the souls of dead sailors.
