  Horseshoe Bat

 

Vietnam

A Horseshoe Bat, in Thai called kahng kahw mongkut or Diadem Bat, found hanging in an old Viet Cong tunnel in Cu Chi (fig.). Both names are descriptive of the broad, horseshoe-shaped anterior nose-leaf, that characterizes all bats in this family. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
