Large-eared slit-faced bat

Nycteris macrotis

Summary 2

The Large-Eared Slit-Faced Bat(Nycteris macrotis) is a species of slit-faced bat which lives in forests and savannas throughout Africa. Nycteris vinsoni was once considered a synonym of N. macrotis, but it became recognized as a separate species in 2004. Some, however, still consider N. vinsoni to be a subspecies of N. macrotis, and consider N. macrotis a species complex.
