"They are in the toilet", they said. Nothing special, I thought. As usual, Nycteris or stuff like this.
"But you cannot take photos of them," they said. Why not - bats in the toilet. " Because they are in the toilet."
Hm. French toilets with a colony of some thousand bats underground. Was quite difficult to get photos through the holes, true. But we managed. And we managed to catch one for portraits.

P.S. Thankfully, the primary school toilets weren't used. ;)

Description from Wikipedia

The Hipposideridae are a family of bats commonly known as the Old World leaf-nosed bats. While it has often been seen as a subfamily, Hipposiderinae, of the family Rhinolophidae, it is now more generally classified as its own family. Nevertheless, it is most closely related to Rhinolophidae within the suborder Pteropodiformes (or Yinpterochiroptera).
