colony of 10.000+ in mango trees along fence of compound of Garde Presidentielle, and inside compound
Under eaves; group (12 or so) would scuttle to far side when observed.
Terrible picture, but I believe that these should be distinctive in the area?
Uncertain of species; seemed best fit; not examined.
Large, couldn't give a precise measurement but would be surprised in wingspan was below 80cm.
Feed in immediate area on guava, mango and particularly Mpundu beans; generally a significant number roosting in date palm, so not inconceivable that they are feeding on those, too.
a wonderful colony of Eidolon helvum
During a visit to Anjajavy Reserve/hotel, we took a short drive (15 min) to a small cave, and saw about 20 of these bats hanging overhead.

2 Bats under a palm leaf in my garden
2 Epauletted Fruit Bats were roosting regular in the tree in our garden. They looked both like males as they were very big. But not 100% sure...
They were there from the 26/08/2014 - 08/09/2014
