Yellow-winged bat (Lavia frons), lighthouse, Chumbe Island Coral Park, Tanzania (June 5, 2016)

The yellow-winged bat is one of five species of false vampire bat (family Megadermatidae) from Africa. The bat mostly lives in woodland and savanna habitats and in elevations of less than 2,000 m. It prefers to live in areas where the vegetation is well spaced, which allows it to view more of its surroundings.
