Give a bat a bad name....

This very rare Bolivian nectar bat has a pretty impressive tongue. But I am wondering where the name Anoura fistulata came from? I guess the meaning of "fistula" in English has become more specific than just referring to the tube-shaped lips of this bat.

You can follow along with the expedition that found this unusual animal here or on their Facebook page.
