My fellow human beings,
Today’s animal of choice was introduced to me by a couple of colleagues (thank you, Jermaine and Siyan!), and I just couldn’t resist sharing this because it is a cutie patootie.
I present… one of only two white-coloured bats in the world, the Honduran White Bat!
These tiny (less than 5 cm!) creatures are famed for using large leaves of plants as shelter against the environment, hiding below these tents that they have fashioned themselves. So, yes, this bat doesn’t live in a cave!
To add to the cuteness, a single bat is known as a pup, whereas a colony of them is a “cloud of bats”. White puffy clouds!
So cute, cannot tahan.
A successful leader knows how to be resourceful and modifies their surroundings to suit their needs – just like how the Honduran White Bats turn the leaves of plants into their shelter!
Til next time, happy Thursday!
