Hipposideros Ater (n) - the dusky leaf-nosed bat's habitat extends from India and Sri Lanka to New Guinea, the Philippines and Northern Australia. The genus name Hipposideros comes from the Greek word for horseshoe, a reference to the complex nose that species in this genus are known for.
The dusky leaf-nosed bat design, now all dressed up in a santa hat and ready for Christmas!
The Specimen range of Greetings Cards has been inspired by carefully labelled specimens collected and stored in Natural History Museums, each with a careful note of their species in latin written in calligraphy underneath. They're a great way to buy one of my original illustrations, and look spectacular framed.
This bat has been hand drawn in pencil by London-based designer Maddie Chambers before being digitally printed in the UK onto 300gsm recycled card using eco-friendly inks.
Also the Bison greetings cards are blank inside - perfect for you to write, draw and doodle in!
Each Also the Bison card is sent 'naked' and plastic-free, with a brown kraft paper envelope included.
Dimensions: A6, 105 × 148 mm
