    You guys can't seem to decide between the Skeleton and the Taxidermy so why not have both? 

    Leschenault's rousette (Rousettus leschenaultii) is a species of fruit bat. This bat species is found in a variety of habitats ranging from tropical forests to urban environments. It roosts in caves, old abandoned buildings and tunnels, and other such structures. A colony of this animal can contain up to several thousand individuals. They feed on fruits, nectar and flowers.

    These specimens come from Indonesia where the bats are a food source for humans. Manado, the capital of North Sulawesi province, Indonesia, is the centre of the high intensity bushmeat trade in Indonesia. The predominantly Christian population is not prohibited from eating wildlife like bats and boar, unlike other parts of Indonesia where a majority of people are Muslim and must observe halal dietary restrictions.

    You can own this very special creature housed in its own dome!

    Dimensions are 8 inch high x 5.5 inch wide.
