A harp trap for capturing large megachiropterans is described. The trap is portable and can be transported on a vehicle roof rack. It can be set up in 3h by three people and dismantled in half that time. Three species have been captured, Pteropus poliocephalus (n = 2327), P. alecto (n = 1509) and P. scapulatus (n = 780), with virtually no injuries.
