<economic importance> paragraph says strange things. The tequila fruit? What? And does it live in Asia? Hm.

Untitled[edit]

Southeast Asia and Borneo[edit]

From the lede, "It is a small bat that lives in South and Southeast Asia and Indonesia (Borneo)." Is there a definition of Southeast Asia that doesn't already include Borneo? 202.155.85.18 (talk) 07:15, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Question[edit]

If it's a megabat, why is it so tiny? Looks like a microbat to me. Sca (talk) 20:52, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
