Nycteris javanica (Javan slit-faced bat) / Indonesia


The Javan slit-faced bat is a species of slit-faced bat found on the Kangean Islands of Indonesia, Nusa Penida, Java, and West Timor.

The skull is distinguished by a characteristic interorbital concavity, externally connected to a long slit that runs down the centre of their faces from between the eyes to the nostrils, and probably assists in echolocation. They have large ears, and a complex nose-leaf. Their tails end in a T-shape, formed from cartilage, a unique feature among mammals.
