Davy's naked-backed bat
Davy's naked-backed bat (Pteronotus davyi) is a small insect-eating, cave-dwelling bat and is found throughout South and Central America, including Trinidad, but not Tobago. Its wings are attached to the top of its body instead of to the sides, as in all other bat species. Specimens of this bat had been found infected with rabies in Trinidad during the height of that's island's vampire-bat transmitted rabies epidemic of the early half of the 20th Century, but not in recent times.( Trinibats. Gomes. Pers. Comm., 2014).
