Anoura caudifer

Anoura caudifer

Tailed Tail-less Bat

Anoura caudifer is a small bat of around 10g in weight from the family Phyllostomidae (sub-family Glossophaginae).  It is nectivorous although it will also consume small insects, and is found in tropical and sub-tropical areas of South America.

It is uniformly brown and has the typical nose leaf of the family as well as a long, narrow snout with a long tongue measuring up to 3cm.  It will also readily take nectar solution from a handheld syringe (as in photo above).
