For Your Viewing Pleasure, the Sucker-Footed Bat
Since Halloween is looming we thought we'd be festive. So we present to you one weird looking bat.
The Sucker-Footed Bat [pictured above and right] is native to the dry western forests of Madagascar.
Myzopoda schliemanni, scientific name, use their adhesive organs to scale the large, broad leaves of tropical plants where they roost.
Scientists only discovered the species in January of this year, so not much else is known about this new find. But it certainly is a sight to behold.
