Hi, I'm Andrew and I’m just a simple 19 year old guy and zoology student that posts random factoids about obscure animals and general animal science/zoology/biology stuff so if you like animals this is the place for you, if you only like cute animals this is not the place for you… Also I can ID any animals you might need identified (just submit them to me).

Disclamer: none of the pictures are mine unless stated

Painted bat (Kerivoula picta)

…is a species of vesper bat found throughout China, India, and parts of Southeast Asia and Indonesia. They are often found roosting in unusual places like under birds nests or under man made structures. Not much is known about their biology as they are rare and poorly researched. Other than their unique coloration they are fairly normal bats that hunt insects at night using sonar.
