Frog-eating bat (Trachops cirrhosus) swooping down on a frog from the air. This bat can consume 30- 40 frogs in one night's hunting. It analyses the calls of its frog prey and can discriminate between the calls of poisonous and non-poisonous species. The frog-eating bat is found in the understorey of the rainforests of Central and South America. Photographed on Barro Colorado Island, Panama.
