    This Is Why We Should All Love Bats

    Give them a chance, you guys. They just want to eat all the bugs and pollinate tequila plants.

    Look at this bat. That's a nice bat.

    Nobody really likes these guys, though.

    (Sorry, bat friends.)

    Because people think bats are terrifying little sharp-toothed bundles of flying hate.

    But here's the thing.

    BATS ARE ADORABLE.

    THEY JUST WANT TO BE LOVED.

    And give love in return.

    Poor, misunderstood bats. See this one?! It's like a little hamster with wings! Oh my god!

    And they're big fans of watermelon!

    But wait. There's more.

    Doesn't this strangely kind of resemble...

    THIS?!?

    Answer: pretty much.

    And not only are they the cutest. Oh, no. Bats are wonderfully useful creatures to have around.

    Someday, this guy will be able to eat 600 mosquitoes in an hour. This is a mosquito-killing MACHINE.

    Say these people here.

    (Don't pretend like mosquitoes aren't the worst.)

    And if it weren't for bats, we might have fewer bananas, mangoes, almonds, peaches...

    and TEQUILA.

    These people say that bats pollinate a bunch of different plants and/or spread their seeds. Seed production of the agave plants used to make tequila drops to 1/3000th of normal without bats to pollinate them.

    I mean, don't get me wrong.

    THEY ARE THE NIGHT.

    But also friends.

    Squeaky-clean friends.

    (Apparently, bats groom themselves like cats.)

    Which makes it sort of less awful if one of them beelines it for your hair.

    The end.
