found only in south-eastern Australia, including TasmaniaStatus:
Sometimes referred to as Australia’s smallest mammal, the Little Forest Bat (Vespadelus vulturnus
) has quite the appropriate name. LOOK HOW LEETLE IT ISSSS!!
Adults only weigh between 2.5 and 5 g (0.088 and 0.18 oz) and their tiny wingspan is 5.9 inches max. During the winter, sexually mature males and females will mate, producing a single pup. Can you imagine how mind-blowingly cute that thing must be? If you can’t, let me show you…
