Tube-nosed Bat

This clever looking Tube-nosed bat is one of the 200 plus rare species found last year in Papua New Guinea. Photos have been released via Conservation International and I just had to post the Tube-nosed bat photo, but you should check out the others as well because they are all really stunning.

It’s not official if this is a new species yet, nor does the bat have a name but the Tube-nosed bat is a fruit-eating bat.  For more info check out the photos and quick summaries of some of the species found.

If you are really curious you can read more about the entire expedition via Conservation International.
