Mystery mammal photos from Venezuela

Hello all,

I’m new to the blogging world, so excuse the poor formatting for the moment. I’m a freelance biologist currently in Missoula, MT.  I’ve always been primarily interested in birds, but I’m trying to branch out a bit and learn what I can about mammals and herps. My first few posts will be mostly mystery photos from previous trips. After that, who knows…trip reports, photos from the field, and travel commentary are all fair game. Thanks for checking out the blog.

I’ve got some mammal photos from a 2008 trip to Venezuela that I can’t ID. I’m hoping that some more knowledgable folks out there can help me out.

Marmosops sp? Photos were taken in Bolivar, VZ.  In the Gran Sabana at the base of Mt. Roraima. 1,100m.



Large(r) Opossum.  Photos were taken in Lara, VZ.  In Parque Nacional Yacambu, cloud-forest. 1,500m.


Bats.  Photos were taken in Falcon, VZ.  Medium-sized cave in the Sierra de San Luis. Unknown elevation, but probably around 1,000m.

  1. Im the curator for small mammals in the german zoo of Erfurt. And I’m the redacteur of the magazin of a non-profit society of breeders of small mammals (zoos and private persons) . In our society are also specialists for small mammals and other species. I’d like to ask you if you are interested in cooperation?
    best regards
