Many Nectar Bats Taking Their Evening Meal At The Panama Fruit Feeder – May 23, 2020

Orange Nectar Bats aren’t the only mammals to visit the Panama Fruit Feeder at night, though they are certainly the most active. These bats have unique mouth physiology that allows them to use their muscles, as well as capillary action, to draw nectar from plants and feeders. Their tongues have a pair of grooves, lined many small muscles, that are used to force the nectar up and into their mouths.
