Since as I am on a role with posting here, I thought I may as well put out another couple of questions. Both relate to unidentified mammals from some of my previous trips and if anyone has any suggestions of people I may be able to contact who could possibly assist with the ID’s of these animals, it would be greatly appreciated.
The first one was a bat that we saw in Hanoi in Vietnam. I managed to get some really bad photos of it too, although I’m not sure how useful they are going to be for the ID. From what I could see, they appeared to possibly be some sort of Round-leaf Bat species and we saw loads of them flying around at Hoan Kiem Lake in the city one evening. They all appeared to be the same species and were very numerous, so I’m wondering if anyone knows whether there is a particular species known from this area or not…? Perhaps I am just clutching at straws here and the species will remain forever unresolved…:)
The second one is a mouse photographed in Lake Mburo National Park in Uganda. I am hoping that someone might have contact details for a small mammal specialist in this area who may be able to assist or alternatively, know where I might be able to get a comprehensive checklist of the mammals of this area to be able to see what the possibilities are? Again, this might just be a straw clutching exercise…:)
Thanks again in advance.
