Long-Tongued Nectar Bat Skeleton, Hanging
These are real long-tongued nectar skeleton mounts (Macroglossus minimus)! These bats hunt and navigate using echolocation.
They have been mounted to allow for a better understanding of their upside-down hanging anatomy. These are found throughout Indonesia.
These specimens measure ~3.5" long and can be shipped worldwide!
They are sustainably hunted by the local peoples as a source of food and income. These bats have been studied and rated a level of "Least Concern" on the IUCN index of endangered/at-risk species due to their reproductive rate and widespread distribution.
**These were exported under permits from the Indonesian government.**
