Description

Formerly (1994) enormous colony of about 1 million individuals in the huge entrance chamber of the "Nandembo Cave System" (this entrance chamber is called "Nangoma Cave"). This colony declined rapidly in size due to increased tourist visits of Nangoma Cave. During a return trip in the year 2000 the colony was only half of the former size.
No sample has been collected but it can be regarded as confirmed that the colony consisted of a large species of fruit bats.
