Description:This image depicts a right lateral (side) view of a Jamaican fruit bat’s, Artibeus jamaicensis, head region. See PHIL 15132, for a full-color version of this same image.
This fruit bat measures an average 9.0cm in length, a gray-brown coat with a scent described as being very similar to soap-like. Members of this genus display pointier ears than its relatives in closely-related genera. It possesses no external tail, and hence, a very minimal, “U-shaped” interfemoral membrane between its hind legs, also known as the uropatagium.
