This creature is a cross between a bat and a possum. It has a long black tail, brown fur with short bat wings. On its head are two short horns and it has long fangs which poke from its mouth. The Gerota lives in the caves of Catlin in New Zealand. The creature was discovered by Lester Rowntree who displayed a stuffed Gerota as a part of his roadshow across New Zealand in 2011. There is a possibility that the Gerota is a Jenny Hanniver, a hoax stuffed creature made to look real.
