Does this count: a flying mammal?

I was ever so surprised to see this bat hanging from a tree in broad daylight, during the heat of the day in Namibia. It gradually moved position to stay in the shadow of the tree as soon as it became exposed to the sun.
Shot with 7D, Minolta 80-200mm at 200mm, f 8, ISO 200, 1/60 s.
