Description

This bat dropped partially eaten Syzygium jambos and Maesopsis eminii fruits onto my dinner plate. Fruit bats often leave remains in this banda, but it had never happened during a meal before. There was heavy rain for several nights preceding this, and I think the bat was getting desperate to use its feeding roost even though people were around. We weren't aware of its presence until it dropped the fruits. Although you cannot see it clearly in this photo, the bat rested with its wings folded around itself (not at its sides).
