Hilgendorf's Tube-Nosed Bat is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.
Hilgendorf's Tube-Nosed Bat has murky green short hair, with blue eyes and visible vampire fangs. As most bats, she has two characteristic bat ears and two bat wings on her back, and she's wearing a traditional "Tengu" mask on the side of her head. She wears a black long sleeved shirt with a musky green sailor uniform on top and a red tie. Her musky green skirt fades to an orange color towards the bottom, and her cape follows the same pattern. She also wears some traditional red geta sandals known as a Tengu geta.
In Real Life
Hilgendorf's Tube-Nosed Bats can be found in Kazazhstan, Mongolia, northeast China, easternmost Russia, Korea and Japan. It is a widespread, but naturally rare species that inhabits hilly and mountainous areas, taking refuge in forests, caves and sometimes buildings. They gain their name due to the small protruding nostrils in their head. They are about 5.5 cm in body length, and they have grayish fur with silver-colored long over hairs.
Not much is known about its habits. More often than not, they will move in four legs when on the ground. Apparently insectivorous and a ground-gleaner, as it picks its prey from the ground, searching through soil or vegetation surface. This information is verified by the many of them being caught in pitfall traps, and never being caught in traps higher than ground level.
- The japanese name of the animal "テングコウモリ" (tengu koumori) and part of the attire she wears as a friend shows a clear relation to the japanese mythical creature Tengu.
