There are over 60 different types of flying fox. They are mostly vegetarian, which means they're quite a nuisance to farmers, eating the fruit crops.

A sweet affectionate bat was rescued.

The juvenile flying fox named Jeddah was rescued by Megabattie, a carer for injured and orphaned bats.

He was clearly appreciative.

The little bat couldn't help but make the most adorable noises while getting his head scratched by his caretaker.

This is what Megabattie had to say about Jeddah.

"He loves to be tickled and scratched. Look at that blissful face. I usually clip my videos quite short when it’s all one behavior being shown, but this bliss went on and on and I just couldn’t bring myself to deprive you of any of the lengthy joy. I particularly loved the yawny and sniffy bits about halfway through. And I love the curl of the tongue as he yawns. This bat was not releasable due to injuries. He is in care with a vaccinated and licensed bat carer. He is used to being handled. He actively solicits attention and cuddles. There have been suggestions that this bat is terrified and the squeaks are not cute. This bat is in bliss and is able to get away from the carer at any time. He is choosing to be stroked. He solicits attention." This might be my dream job!
