Since being bitten by a bat while onstage with The Pretty Reckless in Seville last week, Taylor Momsen has revealed that her tourmates AC/DC and their crew have been making the best of the situation.

Immediately after the incredibly random incident, the rock legends had a sign put up backstage for the following date at Spain’s La Cartuja Stadium to make it very clear that bats are definitely not allowed on their current European POWER UP tour.

That’s with the exception of a cute rubber duck version, though, as they then went on to gift The Pretty Reckless singer with a toy bat.

“AC/DC crew continuing to be the greatest… thanks for the gift I LOVE IT!!!” Taylor posted, along with a video of herself opening it. “Thanks for all your great work every night.” How lovely is that?

And it’s clear the whole ordeal hasn’t put her off the spooky winged creatures, either, with Taylor happily joking in the video: “I can take bat bubble baths now!”

Thankfully, the musician seems to be doing okay after she was nibbled during a performance of Witches Burn a week ago.

“He was cute,” she said of what happened, “but yes he bit me… so rabies shots for the next two weeks. Thanks to all the staff at the hospital who dubbed me #batgirl after seeing it on the local news that morning… more footage to come… that’s one for the books!!!!”

As a reminder, here’s exactly what happened – as documented via crowd footage, and Taylor herself:
