BAT SKELETON - PIPISTRELLUS ABRAMUS
The Japanese pipistrelle, Pipistrellus abramus, is a species of vesper bat. Adults are between 1.4 and 1.9 inches in body length, and each wing is between 1.3 and 1.4 inches. This species is found across much of East Asia, particularly in China, Taiwan, the Korean Peninsula, and of course, Japan. Members of this species tend to live in the ceilings and roofs of abandoned houses, and feed on beetles, flies, moths, and other small insects. Bats, on average, have around 45 bones throughout the body; these bones are, like in humans and other mammals, held together at the joints by assorted muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
This genuine P. abramus skeleton is finely articulated and mounted onto a polished compressed-wood base. A clear dome on top completes the casing; this specimen makes for a lovely display.

As soon as I took my new bath colleton out of the box, I was very impressed with the care and security of packing, first if all. The skeleton itself is impeccable. I highly recommend ordering one. These are the best I have seen in a long time.
