However, other "pipistrelles" cannot be confidently excluded.

AfriBats Fruit bat
Fruit bat commented on by AfriBats Saudi Arabia4 years ago

There are 2 fruit bat species occurring in Saudi Arabia: Eidolon helvum and Rousettus aegyptiacus. The latter is more likely based on overall greyish pelage, but another photo (preferably showing the back) would be needed to confirm this.

Could you split this into 2 spottings? The 1st photo shows a sheath-tailed bat (fam. Emballonuridae), the 2nd photo a woolly bat (Kerivoula sp.).

And please add it to this mission:
