Bats, bats, bats

The tree on the left side of road looks kind of dead but look closely.  Those are not dead leaves or hanging moss those are fruit bats.  Hundreds of them!

  1. These are straw-coloured fruit bats (Eidolon helvum).

    Would you add your photo as a citizen-science observation to the AfriBats project on iNaturalist?:

    AfriBats will use your observations to better understand bat distributions and help protect bats in Africa.

    Please locate your picture on the map as precisely as possible to maximise the scientific value of your records.

    Many thanks!
