  • Hanging Skeletal Bat | Dome | Cynopterus minutus

    The Forest Short-nosed Fruit Bat, also known as 'Minute Fruit Bat', is the smallest of the Cynopterus group. 

    Its small body allows it to navigate forest habitat and can be found on the islands of Sumatra, Java, Borneo and Sulawesi.

    This gorgeous specimen has been professionally preserved and housed in a beautiful dome. 

    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.

    Dimensions are Height 18cm x Diameter 10cm.
