Giant House Bat Scotophilus nigrita

Observer

Date

January 10, 2016

Description

3 individuals trapped at dawn in mist nets set over water on west side of Kartong Bird Observatory to catch Palearctic shorebirds and herons. Each bat was light yellow in colour and similar size or slightly larger than Gambian epauletted fruit bat but without white marks and with obvious banana shaped tragus. In each case it took two people to safely extract and release the bats due to their size and aggression.
