Description

This is what is left from the Musha "forest", (on lake Muhazi's shores), locally known as an Eidolon helvum roosting site. As observed in other places in Rwanda like Kigali and Gisenyi, the bats seems to have migrated and are not on the site for this moment. But I've observed before that Eidolon preferably roosts on that type of trees (Cupressus sp.) and the damages on the trees are revealing the former presence of bat's colonies.
