Remember the panda ant we featured some time back? Now a rare bat that sports a coat of black and white coat of fur has been discovered in South Sudan’s Bangangai Game Reserve. Nicknamed the ‘panda bat’, the genus Niumbaha superba is a league of its own. As biology associate professor DeeAnn Reeder, who discovered it, said, ‘Its cranial characters, its wing characters, its size, the ears – literally everything you look at doesn’t fit. It’s so unique that we need to create a new genus’.
