Duiker dung. There are two options on Bioko: blue (smaller) & red (bigger). The pellets looked 'big' to me, for whatever that's worth. Maybe red?

Bizarrely, this slug's mantle seems to fit into a groove and can stick upward. Anybody else seen anything like this? Is this normal?

Seen on a busy Malabo street, roosting in palm trees. Possible that these are Rousettus (either R. aeyptiacus or angolensis) but a Google image search looks like it better matches Eidolon helvum.
