[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taphozous nudiventris (ENG: The Naked-bellied Tomb Bat) from Syria: A large population of this bat was observed on 13.08.2006 at A’yn Jum’aa near Deyr ez-Zur. About 200-300 animals were spotted in several crevices located on cliffs on the southern side of the Euphrates. Bats were very noisy when approached and moved deeper in the crevices while attempting to capture them. Faecal remains are relatively in large quantity with strong odor. Also, another population was spotted on 14.08.2006 in Kal’at er-Rahba. This colony was hiding in vertical crevices less than 10 cm wide. The Naked-bellied Tomb Bat is a
crevices dweller. Hundreds of bats were observed packed in small flat narrow crevices that extends deep to the inside. Also, one population was observed in an open cave near A’yn Jum’aa, hanging to the highest point of the cave. Despite the effort to capture specimens by mist nets, the animals were hesitant to leave their crevices. This species lives only in Gaziantep in Turkey.
