This Wondir of the World’s evolutionary spirit animal is the orange-furred flying bulldog. The greater and lesser bulldog bat, also known as the fisherman bat, uses sonar to locate fish, then dips a pouch formed by webbing between its legs to scoop them out of rivers and lakes. DJ Hanif Wondir also comes out at night, uses sound to swoop up his target and his wheel-spinnin’ limbs to lift them up into his musical pouch of possibilities—consuming them with mixes that jump from The Roots to MIA to Major Lazer to Stevie Wonder (no relation). Key difference: Wondir doesn’t eat his prey. Key similarity: They’re both good around water, making Wondir a hit at pool parties.
