We were being punted down a canal , in the Sloth sanctuary in Costa Rica , there was a hollowed out tree that had fallen over the canal , it was just above our heads , as we went under it we looked up and saw these three beautys watching us , I’m afraid I don.t know what type of bat they are , if anyone knows please help ? .

    Shiver – they look amazingly beautiful but still send a shiver down my spine!

  • They were ok , the trouble was there were 5 of us in this narrow boat 2 women 4 men , as we were concentrating on the bats , a very big spider ran by the bats above our heads , one of the ( men ) screamed and jumped out of the way , nearly tipping us into the crocodile infested waters , we have never laughed so much .
