Just sorting pitcures...have some more shots of the roosting cave on Mahe Island. One of the only known locations. It is not protected, although monitored by the MoE (Perly Constance) and by NGOs actively trying to add to the list of successful Seychelles species recovery. This os one of only three known roosts on Mahe, aside from others on Silhouette (stronghold) and Praslin and La Digue (status unsure). The area is subject to development disturbance and some protection is critical, rather than hoping that its small and obscure location will survive impacts.
Several cattering in the palms and takamaka trees by the Aldabra NP headquarters.

Small bats in an abandoned mine shaft cave in Kakamega Forest National Park
2 adult bats seen around the lodges in the Acacias for 3 days in a row at dusk. Pic can be found here... http://www.flickr.com/photos/chartzell/8637087494/
These bats where caught as the tree branch on which they were resting collapsed in the middle of the afternoon. The bats where half asleep as they fell. Some of them survivded, others dizzy and caught by the inhabitants.
It is common to see hundreds of bats on the same tree. This must be overwhelming for the tree (weigh, lack of light, damaged branches and leaves), which probably explains why the branches collapse.
smaller bat (Scotophilus dinganii) for size comparison
Caught in mist-net over forest pool.
Je ne connais pas la variété de ces chauves souris présentent au Niger. Celles-ci nichent en liberté dans les arbres qui bordent le bâtiment de la Banque Centrale des Etats de l'Afrique de l'Ouest (BCEAO)à Niamey, Niger. c'est une forte population, puisqu'elles colonisent tous les arbres qui ceinturent le bâtiment. Elles nichent également dans les mosquées. Il en existe également dans le massif de l'Aïr au Nord du Niger (Mont Bagzan), une variété plus petite, quiniche dans les palmiers dattiers.
