Papiliorama - Nocturama (Mixed exhibit)

A view inside the Nocturama hall in the Papiliorama. This picture shows part of the exhibit for linnaeus' two-toed sloths (Choloepus didactylus), southern tamanduas (Tamandua tetradactyla), Brazilian porcupines (Coendou prehensilis), lowland pacas (Cuniculus paca) and nine-banded armadillos (Dasypus novemcinctus). 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.
