The Ghost Bat


The Ghost bat (Macroderma gigas) is the largest member of the false vampire bat family (Megadermatidae). I think that Ghost bats are really adorable! These bats live across Australia, from rainforest areas to more arid areas. They mostly roost alone, and they eat small animals or large insects. Ghost bats are named after their whitish head, ears, wing membrane, and nose; their fur is also whitish. These bats have no external tail, but they do have a large tail membrane. I first found out about these bats when I watched this video about Patrick, who is a Ghost bat. I found an article from ARKive about these bats,  I also found another good article. This bat is pretty “Bat-tastic” in my opinion. Enjoy!
