Hanging out at Kakadu

The yellow-bellied sheathed bat at the Bowali Visitor Centre

This super-cute bat surprised visitors when he decided to hang out at Kakadu last week.

The yellow-bellied sheathtail bat is usually very difficult to spot – they fly high and fast – so we were very surprised to see it inside the Visitor Centre!

Luckily he wasn’t camera shy so we managed to get this great picture of him on one of the window blinds. Wonder if he is as cuddly as he looks?
