4 small leaf-nosed bats spotted inside a ruined temple in Dzibilchaltun, Mexico
AKA... Watson's fruit eating bat.
Cute little ones Karen.... Lovely spotting.
Thank you venusflytrap and Antonio!
Wow Karen,awesome series,beautifull,congrats and thanks for sharing
terrific series, Karen!
Thanks for the ID Lauren. These little guys were about 15' up in the roof of a ruined temple and by the smell of guano this was a regular roost!
If this is Dermanura watsoni (Artibeus Dermanura watsoni) it is supposed to be a tent making bat and I haven't yet found any reference to it being found roosting in Temple ruins. Very interesting.
