Mount Bosavi Papua New Guinea volcano

"This common tube-nosed bat may not be a previously undiscovered species, but it is just one part of the incredible lost world researchers found in the remote crater."

Since the last eruption of Mount Bosavi 200,000 years ago, the Papua New Guinea volcano has become a rich environment full of animals and insects that can’t be seen anywhere else on Earth. And when an expedition of researchers from the US, UK and Papua New Guinea ventured into the crater of Mount Bosavi earlier this year, they found a wealth of previously undiscovered species.

The expedition, filmed by the BBC for a three-part series, took the team into one of the remotest areas of the planet. The rain forest in the dormant volcano’s 100-meter-wide crater isnearly inaccessible. The nearest village is 15 miles away, and the local language is spoken by fewer than 1000 people. The team had to explain to the villagers the concept of paying them for their help and the temporary use of their land to set up base camp. Shown above: the fruit dove and an iridescent beetle found in the crater.

The common tube-nosed fruit bat (Nyctimene albiventer) is a species of megabat in the Pteropodidae family. It is found in Australia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands.
