This is Eric, the same individual posted on the 9th of February 2015, now trying to practice flying and growing very well on a diet of pasteurised milk and banana, with some variation of guava and mango.
He tries wild figs but does not seem able to break into them.
Radius is now 8.7 cm and body weight of 100 g (+/- 10g)!

Identification of these small Epomophorus bats in Kasanka is a bit tricky: they clearly belong to the crypturus/labiatus/minimus group based on the pattern of the palatal ridges. Morphometrically, they agree with what Bergmans & van Strien (2004) identified as "E. cf. labiatus" from Malawi, and are smaller than E. crypturus, E. angolensis, and E. anselli.

However, these small Epomophorus would also agree in measurements with what was previously called E. minor, and what is now generally accepted as E. minimus. The latter species is currently assumed to range from Ethiopia to East Africa, with no records near Kasanka NP. Based on distribution, Kasanka specimens are tentatively referred to E. labiatus.
