-Neo tropical fruit bats- . . . This pretty friend was sleeping in our roof some days ago. He didn’t transform in to a terrible vampire, he didn’t bite us and infected us with any type of virus... He and other species of bats polonaise a lot of flowers and trees, they are responsible for giving us the chance to have a bunch of different fruits on our tables! Don’t panic, don’t kill them, protect them 🦇 ❤️ . . 📸: @stefanobajak . . www.savetheparadise.com . . #nature #naturephotography #naturelover #naturelovers #savetherainforest #takeaction #bethechange #anonymousforthevoiceless #ourplanetdaily #ourplanet #planetearth #rainforest #climatecrisis #climatecrisisisreal #extinctionrebellion #mompiche #ecuador #bats #bat #batsofinstagram #batsman #savethebats #protectthebats

Dose anyone know what type of bat this is? I think it’s a Kitti's hog-nosed bat found in a small cave in Barbados. . . . . #bats #batsofinstagram #batidentify #whatsthisbatpal ? #animallovers #nature #naturephotography #outdoors #canonphotography #barbados #barbados 🇧🇧 #visitbarbados #barbadostoday #barbadosanimals #batsofbarbados

Hiçbir hayvan nefreti hak etmez 🦇 Pandeminin sebebi onlar değil biz insanlarız, biliyorsunuz değil mi? : ) . #Repost @wingspawsnclaws • • • • • • When Psyduck was a baby 🥰 He dropped his dummy/pacifier while having a nap, and decided to suckle on his mumma roll instead! If flying fox pups don't have a dummy/pacifier in their mouth, mimicking their mums nipple, they think their mum has left them and will cry out in distress. It's for comfort and safety. They ditch it once they start to become more confident and adventurous! This was taken a few months ago. Psyduck is now flying and being prepared for release back into the wild. He's being dehumanised and learning to be a real bat before joining a nearby colony ❤️ *bats are not pets* - I am a licensed and vaccinated wildlife rescuer and rehabilitator. If you see a sick or injured bat, do not touch it. Call your nearest wildlife rescue group. No touch, no risk. #psyducktheflyingfox #psyduck #pokemon #greyheadedflyingfox #vaccinatedandlicencedcarer #bcrq #batsqld #wildliferescue #batsofaustralia #australianwildlife #batsofinstagram #batsarenotpets #pleasedonottouchbats #notouchnorisk #rehabilitateandrelease #secondchance #australia #queensland #battyburrito #threatenedspecies #protectedspecies #bat #bats #babybat

Day-flying bat! Seen about 11am, it was almost freezing the night before so I guess there wasn't enough dinner flying around. Risky move though bat, there are sparrowhawks in the area. Very likely a pipistrelle but I didn't have my bat detector with me. Tonight though... #bat #pipistrelle #bats #oxleaswoods #oxleas #batsofinstagram

Could deforestation have played a part in the emergence of Covid-19? As our forests shrink due to mass livestock farming, wild animals lose their habitats and end up in closer contact with humans, thus leading to cross-contamination. The colours show our liveable space, represented in green, getting invaded by humankind's resource-intensive industrial food complex.  Written by: @greenqueenhk . . . . . . . . #climatechange #covıd19 #deforestation #farm #orange #editorialillustration #illustration #procreate #forest #savetheplanet #digitalillustration #batsofinstagram #cow #chicken #pig

[ENGLISH BELOW] ¡Murciélagos insectívoros! La mayoría de nuestros #aliadosnocturnos 🦇🌕se alimentan de insectos. También, ayudan a controlar las poblaciones de insectos que son plagas de cultivos o que transmiten enfermedades como el dengue 🦟🚫. ¿Cómo lo hacen?🤔 Los murciélagos insectívoros utilizan la ecolocalización 🔊 para orientarse y encontrar alimento. Emiten ultrasonidos al entorno y a sus presas, reciben ecos que les suministran tanta información como si estuvieran viendo a su presa, aún en total oscuridad. Además, presentan adaptaciones especiales dependiendo de dónde forrajean. Los que se alimentan en el bosque presentan alas anchas y cortas, lo que les permite mayor maniobrabilidad (Foto 1 ). Por otro lado, las especies que cazan insectos en áreas abiertas presentan alas largas y angostas, que les permite alcanzar grandes velocidades (Foto 2 ). --- Let's talk about insectivore bats! Most of our #nocturnalallies 🦇🌕 feed on insects. This means that bats control insects that are common plagues in cultivars, and the mosquitoes that carry the dengue disease 🦟🚫 How do they do it?🤔 The insectivore bats use echolocation 🔊 to navigate and find food. They emit high pitched calls and when the sound hits the target the returning echoes help the bats to recreate and image of the target despite the darkness. Moreover, bats have different body shapes according to the places they visit to find food. Bats that fly in the forests have wide and short wings to maneuver among trees (pic 1 ). Bats flying above treetops and open areas have narrow, long wings allowing them to fly really fast (pic 2 ). --- Foto / Pic 1: Micronycteris hirsuta. (Gabriel Oviedo @ovii_wan_ ).

It’s Sleepy Bat Boy Hours 😴😴🦇 Finally came up with a name for this rad dude: I’m calling him Mud. Its a silly name? Maybe. But hes a grimy goblin bat boy and Mud just seemed to fit. Mud somehow keeps houseplants while living in a van. He tried keeping a pet bug but felt bad and let it go - where it promptly got eaten by looming Wildlife. Mud is not always bright and it takes him quite awhile to get used to living outside of cities at all times. He’s one of the bat characters I am developing for a story series about bats in vans, I hope you like this boy! 🏞🚐🏙 Art & Character belong to me design by fleetwoodbrak @ Toyhouse / Twitter . . . . . . . . . . . . { #furryartist #fursona #batfurry #batsofinstagram #anthroart #purple #90saesthetic #characterconcept #furrycharacter #furrycommunity }

“As the #coronavirus outbreak continues to grow, misinformation in the form of #fakenews , rumors, and gossip have continued to feed mass #hysteria and #panic over the deadly disease. In #Peru , this has resulted in locals attempting to fight #Covid_19 by attacking communities of #bats despite the fact that the novel virus still hasn’t been decisively proven to have originated from the winged creature. On Wednesday, the Peruvian government issued a statement warning residents to stop killing bats after authorities were forced to intervene when roughly half a thousand of the flying mammals came under attack by gangs of peasants hoping to exterminate what they believed were carriers of the disease, Roughly 300 of the creatures were killed in the arson attacks that took place in the small village of #Culden , which lies in the #Cajamarca region, after mobs attacked the caves where the #bat communities dwelled, Peru’s National Service of Wild Forests and Fauna announced. About 200 bats were saved from the torch-bearing gangs by members of the #wildlife service and National Agrarian Health Service who later released the animals into a distant cave far from Culden. “We must not distort the situation due to the pandemic. Bats are not our enemies.” Continuing, the wildlife agency explained that the bats are actually quite beneficial to #humans and are even helping to combat deadly viruses including dengue. #Denguefever outbreaks in Southeast Asia and the Americas have continued unabated while the world’s attention has been fixed on containing the CoViD-19 #pandemic . “70% of the bat species in the world feed off insects, many of which are harmful to #agriculture and our #health , like #mosquitoes that spread dengue and other diseases”. The head of wild fauna operations at SERFOR, also used the opportunity to remind Peruvians that they should abstain from eating #wildanimals or using their flesh for medicinal purposes”.

Actual footage of me eating all my snacks when working from home. 🦇 Giving this fringe-lipped bat (Trachops cirrohsus ) a quick snack after capture. Also called the frog-eating bat, this species of famous for its frog hunting behavior. They listen for the mating calls of frogs (their favorite being the Tungara frog ) to find their next prey. They can also discriminate the calls of different frogs, which is important for avoiding toxic frog species. 🦇 Frogs aren’t the only prey these bats will eat. Fringe-lipped bats will also nab large insects like katydids & even lizards or other small vertebrates. These bats hunt prey using a technique called ‘gleaning’, which means they grab prey from surfaces like the ground or leaves. 🦇 #batsofinstagram #workfromhome #batsofpanama #fringelippedbat #frogeatingbat #omnomnom #bats #wildlife #fieldwork #mistnetting #nature #panama #gamboa #batresearch #phdlife #batsarecool #savethebats #mondaymood

Brazilian long-nosed bat hanging upside down on a tree ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You have to look very carefully to see these bats, as they are naturally camouflaged to blend in, almost perfectly, with the bark and lichen on trees. Their brown fur is flecked with shades of grey and their forearms are masked with tufts of grey fur. To complete their disguise, they have two wavy white lines running down their back. As their name suggests, long-nosed bats have a long, pointed nose and for this reason they are also commonly called proboscis bats. In Costa Rica they are found throughout the Pacific and Caribbean lowlands, nearly always near water. Brazilian long-nosed bats are aerial insectivores; they hunt in family groups and you can find them flying along rivers at night, looking for midges and mosquitoes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #longnosedbat #bat #bats #batphotography #instabat #batsofinstagram #batconservation #chiroptera #camouflage #camouflaged #mammal #mammalsofinstagram #wildlifeofinstagram #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #wildtropics #costaricanwildlife #costaricanature #costaricaphoto #costaricagram #crfanphotos #descubrecostarica #thisiscostarica #puravida #costaricapuravida #tortuguero #tortugueroriver #tortugueronationalpark #costarica #centralamerica

Simon, despite his difficult start to life, has such a wonderful little spirit. He is always happy to see us, and even happier to see us when he knows it's time to eat. Simon is fed 4 times a day, and after eating, likes to nuzzle into our hands and sometimes even catch a quick nap. Banana has quickly become his favorite, and as he grows up we will start to offer him the full array of what our fruit bats are usually provided. Until then, he is quite content with his milk, banana, and cuddle time. ❤ Note- Simon is a short tailed fruit bat. He was part of the 52 recently rescued, and his mother couldn't continue to care for him. We are hand raising him until he is old enough to be released into the main colony, where he will have a permanent home. Fruit bats are not native to the United States and they cannot be transported back to where they originate from. Fruit bats come into the U.S from lab research, the cruel exotic pet trade, and zoos. Fruit bats, like all wildlife, are not pets. All staff at Bat World Sanctuary are fully vaccinated and trained to handle bats. Please never handle any wildlife barehanded. #batsofinstagram #fruitbat #animalsofinstagram #wildlifeonearth #batworldsanctuary #batworld

#microbatmonday juvenile austronomus australis (white-striped freetail bat ) that I hand-raised a few years back now, who has since been released back in to the wild where she belongs. These incredible bats are the real jet pilots of the microbat world. They typically fly high and fast above the canopy. Their echolocation calls (sound pulses which they emit to locate prey in flight and for navigation ) can be heard with the (younger ) human ear unlike most other microbats which echolocate in higher ultrasonic ranges. #zoomzoom #pigscanfly #babytad #austronomusaustralis #whitestripes #speed #speedracer #fast #vaccinatedandlicensedcarer #donttouchbats #wildlife #wildliferescue #orphan #rescueraiserelease @sydneywildliferescue @wireswildliferescue @sydneybats #batsofinstagram
