Flightless shalloth

Excluding the 'thumbs', the fingers of the shalloth's hand-like front feet are fused together.

The flightless shalloth, Arboverspertilio apteryx, is an omnivorous, flightless, arboreal, primate/sloth-like vesper bat from the tropical forests of Batavia which spends its life hanging upside down like the ancient three-toed sloth.

It eats leaves and the occasional insect or smaller vertebrate (such as a rodent) caught by a swift jab of its single claw.
