Maclaud's horseshoe bat.


This bizarre bat species hadn’t been seen in 40 years, and has never been photographed before. German biologist Natalie Weber found 16 Maclaud's horseshoe bats in a cave in Guinea and took the picture. The bat’s face folds are thought to be an aid in echolation. Link -via The Pet Blog
