Caption: A Hardwicke's woolly bat (Kerivoula hardwickii), while roosting in pitcher plant (Nepenthes ampullaria), clings to the outer rim with one foot. This species of pitcher plant is used only by desperate bats when their preferred alternatives are unavailable. They lack a cap to shield bats from rain and are normally nearly full of water. They can be used for roosting only when drained of water. It is unknown whether small holes at the bottom that drain water are made by bats or other animals.
