VAMPIRE BATS 

Unlike other bats who have lost the ability to move around on land, vampire bats can actually run on land. They use their forelimbs as a means of force. This ability evolved independently with the bat lineage.

Happy Birthday Patrick the Wombat! This 29 year old is the world’s oldest living wombat (living currently at the Ballarat Wildlife Park in Australia). Given that Patrick has never had children, or any partners in general, probably makes him the oldest living wombat virgin as well! Congrats mate!
