New Bat Discovered In Africa.

Two years ago, Nancy Simmons (American author) was in the American Museum of Natural History when she got a startling text from a research expedition in Africa.
It was a picture of a bat. It was not just a simple bat but it was of orange with striking black wings, like an ambassador for Halloween. It was also fluffy with big pointy ears. It was new, which have never seen before anywhere. It was discovered by a research crew sleuthing in caves on a mountain range on the border of the ivory coast and New guinea searching for an entirely different species of bat.
Wow, this is really cool," said Simmons, a curator at the New York museum. After seeing the picture of that bat, Simmons search into a bunch of books, looking at pictures of similar bats all over the world.
It took two years to determine that Myotis nimbaensis, named for the Nimba Mountains where it was discovered, was in fact a new species.

Myotis nimbaensis is the second bat species found in those mountains, called sky islands because they sit within a wide expanse of lowlands.

According to the experts, About 20 new bat species are found each year but there was not one which is similar to it.  "The color is just phenomenal,  "Its wings are black with these orange fingers. There are not a lot orange bats in the world. It's definitely an unusual species. Finding a new species of specially colored bats is very rare. I was like, 'I'm pretty sure this is a new species'. We walked in the room in the morning and simultaneously said 'I think we've got a new species.' "

Researchers spent years looking at bats to determine different fur colors, patterns on spiky wings, spots and discoloration on faces. There are other bats as orange as ripe mangoes, in China and South America, but they differ significantly from each other, and certainly from more common black bats.

"It's rare for someone to go out in the field and find a striking, gorgeous animal that's new," Simmons said. "These bats are found only in this area atop the Nimba Mountains. They could have gone extinct and no one would have ever known
