The Daily Beast - February 1, 2011



A Hardwicke's woolly bat (Kerivoula hardwickii) is pictured in Lampanut, central Kalimantan in this 2010 handout photo. Tiny bats, no bigger than a car key, have been discovered roosting in carnivorous pitcher plants in Borneo - with their droppings a vital nutrient for the plants. The roughly 4 grams (0.14 oz) Hardwicke's woolly bat consistently chose the pitchers to sleep in during the day, despite a wealth of other possible roosts in the nearby forest.  REUTERS/M.
