Tree with Nine Proboscis Bats

Uploaded: January 05, 2019 | Entered: January 05, 2019 14:55:04


If you look closely on the right of this tree trunk there are nine little upturned nosed (Proboscis) bats all in a curvy line. They line up this way to look like a snake to keep away predators. When we went by on our little boat they swayed a little so they really looked like a snake. This was in a canal in Tortuguero National Park in Costa Rica.

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
