    For centuries these nocturnal animals have been considered flying nightmares, called sinister and spooky. They've even become a symbol of All Saints' Eve or Halloween.

    More and more videos are emerging showing how adorable bats can be. Like this one, where a little bat is gently hugging a woman's hand, showing its big brown eyes. Social media users have called the bat "a winged puppy" or "a sky puppy", saying that the animal is way too cute. 

    ​In fact, most cultures consider bats as animals associated with death and calamity. However, bats are symbols of good luck in Chinese culture.
