We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
Fringed Fruit-eating Bat
We caught this large frugivorous bat in Misiones in December 2017.
It is similar to Artibeus lituratus, which is common in Misiones and Corrientes, but is smaller with less contrasting facial stripes.
It is a dark grey overall and like the other members of this genus has a well developed uropatagium and no tail. The nose leaf is fused to the upper lip.
It is only found in Misiones, Corrientes, Chaco and Formosa.
