Pangandaran Bats Feeble attempt to take a snapshot of the bats in a cave near Pangandaran. I could not find much other info on bats from Pangandaran except for Sorensen&#039;s Leaf-nosed Bat (Hipposideros sorenseni), a species that has been split off from Hipposideros larvatus by Kitchener &amp; Maryanto (1993) with the Gua Karmat (holy cave, Goa Keramat / Parat ? ) being listed as the only locality for this species, so I&#039;m assuming these bats to be that species.<br />

  1. It's actually a great attempt, knowing how hard it is to photograph in a cave. Posted 2 years ago
    1. Well yes, the other 4-5 snaps were far worse :-|
      It's just that there is very little structure recognizable in the amorph blackish blobs that represent the bats ;o)
