      January 8, 2007—This newly discovered bat is an exemplar of stick-to-it-iveness—in more ways than one.
      .
      Scientists were conducting fieldwork in the fast-disappearing forests of Madagascar when they found this new species of bat with sticky suckers on its feet and thumbs.

      The creature, dubbed Myzopoda schliemanni, uses the adhesive organs to scale the large, broad leaves of tropical plants where it roosts.
