Rare Bat with Super-Long Tongue Spotted in Bolivia : DNews
A tube-lipped nectar bat (Anoura fistulata) was found in Bolivia's Madidi National Park, the first time the species has ever been seen there.

During an expedition in Bolivia, a research team encountered the little-documented tube-lipped nectar bat (Anoura fistulata), known for its enormous tongue.

The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) was in the midst of its multi-year “Identidad Madidi” expedition in Madidi National Park when they spied Anoura fistulata for the first time ever there.

The bat was discovered just 10 years ago in Ecuador. It lives in the Ecuadorian Andes and is known from only three other records. The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) lists Anoura fistulata as “Data Deficient” because not enough is known about the creature’s abundance and distribution to reliably categorize its conservation status.
