Virgil, the Pet of the Day
Name: Virgil
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Little Brown Bat
(Myotis Lucifigus)
Home: Nova Scotia, Canada
   Virgil is very special. I found him lost and separated from his roosting area as a baby, dehydrated, confused, near death. I've been able to rehabilitate him over the months. He can recognize my voice and always comes to me when I call him. His favorite food is mealworms. He likes to do funny little tricks for them. He is very friendly, never bites, (though occasionally has an accident), and is probably the most interesting and unique animal I've ever worked with.
