Ja Slit-Faced Bat

The Ja Slit-Faced Bat (Nycteris major) is a species of slit-faced bat that lives in the tropical and sub-tropical forests of Africa. Its habitat is fragmented and declining, and the species is therefore very rare. Logging and farming are the greatest threats to its habitat currently. There are two known sub-species: Nycteris major avakubia and Nycteris major major.
