I love these little guys and the way they make a tent out of a large leaf for sleeping.

It is hard to see the wings, usually the rest under Heliconia sp leaves.

I saw a picture of these cute bats in a Costa Rican field guide from Zona Publications and was hoping to run into them on my many hikes through the jungle. This picture has inspired me to keep looking. I never thought I could like bats, but they really are just so adorable. Thanks for posting.

Gizmo and his Gremlin friends are Alive! Warning do not feed after 12. Great Shot!

Indeed. Somewhere tucked into those balls of fur are wings .. or such is my understanding. They spend the days hidden under leaves as is shown in the picutre. This was shot straight up from under their position.

A palm of some sort, if I recall. I'm not great with my plants but we were in coastal forrest rather than a plantation.
