10 adorable bats that may or may not suck your blood

1 of 10

It's hard to get a good look at creatures that only come out at night and, like most things that only appear in the dark, bats have a reputation for being more terrifying than charming.

But some of these little guys are downright cute--like the Honduran White Bat, a tiny, fluffy, cuddly-looking bat with orange legs, wings, ears, and face. These vegetarian bats, which live in rainforests in Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama, make their homes in leaves that they cut to form overhead tents; their bright white coats reflect the green-tinted light that comes through the leaves, helping them stay hidden from predators.
