Mauritian Tomb Bat Kilome ©muokikioko'16

Mauritian Tomb Bat (Taphozous
mauritianus) that hangs upside down on surfaces seemingly ever alert and awake during the day suggesting it has a good eyesight.
Avoiding dark areas and instead opting for open spaces that allow it easy take-off, it can now be seen in Kilome.
Thought to exist only below 1000m, it’s resident above 1200m above sea level here.
