Cool Animal of the Day: The Hammer Headed Fruit Bat

Posted: July 28, 2018 in Animals, Great Photographs, Humor, Nature, Things I Love

Look at the head on that Hammer Headed Fruit Bat, man. Sweet Baby Jesus that’s a huge noggin’. The Hammer Headed Fruit Bat’s scientific name is Hypsignathus Monstrosus, which seems about right. His large snout allows him to make a loud, presumably terrifying “honking” sound in the African Rainforest during the dark of night. This bad boy is widely distributed in equatorial Africa, and is one of three species of African fruit bat thought to be infected with the Ebola virus. Good times! Anywho, Hammer Headed Fruit Bat.
