I was accustomed seeing common 'fruit bats' a.k.a. 'Flying fox' of the city.. And ALWAYS wanted to see these small & truly scary( to girls & some guys :-p ) Bats.
But on my trek to 'Harishchandragad' i was lucky enough to see & photograph this beautiful 'Blythe's' horseshoe bat'.
All thanks to my Friend 'Pravin' who spotted this.
Am very sorry that i couldn't click its face because it was resting in very tiny crevices.
My friend assisted me with the torch & help me record this on my cam.
This category is still untouched & still not much study about their diversity..
Blyth's horseshoe bat is a species of bat in the Rhinolophidae family. It is found in Afghanistan, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Thailand and Vietnam.
The species can be identified from its pointed, bifid sella.
