Albino Bat

One of the rarest bats in the world, a completely white (albino) micro bat, nestles on the thumb of carer Pam Tully while recovering from a cat attack at the Batreach Bat Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre at Kuranda, near Cairns in northern Australia. The bat, a Little Northern Freetail nicknamed 'Starshine', is now in recovery and at four months old, weighs just 6 grams - less than a quarter of a ounce. Little or no research has been done into albinoism in bats, with discovered xamples almost none existent. [via Yahoo!]
