Greater Mouse-tailed Bat
Egyptische Klapneusvleermuis
(Rhinopoma microphyllum)

Bamako, Mali
26 February 2010

 

Note the tail, which is nearly as long as its entire body.

To be honest: this bat could possibly also be the Lesser Mouse-tailed Bat (Rhinopoma hardwickei), which is slightly smaller (body lenght of 5.5 cm). Based on the animal's size, I have identified it as Rhinopoma microphyllum.
