The Riparian Myotis Bat (Myotis riparius) is widespread and common on Trinidad, though much of its natural history still remains unknown. This little bat, averaging just 5 grams, eats small flying insects.
The Little Big-eyed Bat - Chiroderma trinitatum - is a relatively rare fruit eating species that forages in the canopy and sub-canopy of Trinidad's forests. This individual was captured and released at the Asa Wright Nature Centre in 2010. Photo: G. Gomes (Trinibats)
The Hairy Big-eyed Bat (Chiroderma villosum) is an uncommon fruit-eating bat in Trinidad. The long guard hairs forming a halo around its head are indicative of the species. (Trinibats)
This magnificent Spectral Bat - Vampyrum spectrum - was captured and released last night in the mountain forests of Trinidad’s northern range. This species is a top predator, feeding on birds and small mammals. According to the International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List, this species is listed as threatened due to its dependence on primary forest habitat and is rare and dispersed anywhere it is found, making it extremely susceptible to habitat fragmentation and population decline. It is very difficult to estimate rates of decline with such a widespread and rare species, especially due to habitat loss and human disturbance. Almost qualifies as threatened under Criterion A. Yet, this magnificent creature, and all bat species, remain "vermin" according to the outdated wildlife laws of Trinidad and Tobago Photo: Rachel Campbell (Trinibats)
The staff said it lives in that pipe and comes out at night.
Found at an antenna installation near Asa Wright Nature Centre. Don't have the exact coordinates. There was two of them - the other was really beat up. You can see part of its wing attached to the fence.
