Giant extinct burrowing bat discovered in New Zealand

(University of New South Wales) The fossilized remains of a giant burrowing bat that lived in New Zealand millions of years ago have been found by a UNSW Sydney-led international team of scientists. Teeth and bones of the extinct bat — which was about three times the size of an average bat today — were recovered from 19 to 16-million-year-old sediments near the town of St Bathans in Central Otago on the South Island.
