Papiliorama - Nocturama (Anaconda exhibit)

The exhibit for green anacondas (Eunectes murinus) inside the Nocturama hall in the Papiliorama. The Nocturama is a quite unique nocturnal house consisting of a glass dome almost 40 meters in diameter and 14 meters tall. Its translucid roof filters daylight approximately a thousand times, thus creating an artificial moonlight. The free-ranging animals in here are consists of three species of bats: Seba’s short-tailed bat (Carollia perspicillata), pale spear-nosed bat (Phyllostomus discolor) and pallas long-tongued bat (Glossophaga soricina). Visitors actually have to be careful walking through here as the bats come VERY close, often grazing or crashing right into you. Papiliorama, July 2010.
