Bat ID (Tanzania)

If anyone knows more about Tanzanian bats than I do (which shouldn’t be hard as I know basically nothing!) then would you try to ID this species seen at Speke Bay on Lake Victoria (by David Bishop).

My best guess is Hairy Slit-faced Bat but that is very much a guess…

    I agree that its a Nycteris, but not sure its hispida, as the nose structure doesn’t look right. However I’m not sure which of the 10-12 species found in this area it might be.

    We would welcome the observation submitted to AfriBats:

    Happy to help with IDs there!
