This is a life size 3D casting of a Kitti's Hog-nosed bat skull, also known as the bumblebee bat because of its tiny size. The Kitti's Hog-nosed Bat is the smallest species of bat and one of the world's smallest mammals.
More about the Bumble Bee Bat The Kitti's Hog-nosed Bat is a vulnerable species of bat and the only member of the family Craseonycteridae. It occurs in western Thailand and southeast Burma, where it occupies limestone caves along rivers. It has a reddish-brown or grey coat, with a distinctive pig-like snout. Colonies range greatly in size, with an average of 100 individuals per cave. The bat feeds during short activity periods in the evening and dawn, foraging around nearby forest areas for insects. Females give birth annually to a single offspring. Although the bat's status in Burma is not well-known, the Thai population is restricted to a single province and may be at risk for extinction. Its potential threats are primarily anthropogenic, and include habitat degradation and the disturbance of roosting sites.
