Animal Species:Orange Leaf-nosed Bat
Orange Leaf-nosed Bats are very sensitive to people disturbing them in their roosts. They will often not return to a roost if it is disturbed more than a few times.
Standard Common Name
Orange Leaf-nosed Bat
Orange Leaf-nosed Bats prefer warm humid caves, although some have been found in hollow tree trunks and roost together in colonies that can be as small as 20 or as large as a few thousand bats.
Feeding and Diet
Orange Leaf-nosed Bats feed mainly on moths, but also on beetles, weevils, bugs, wasps and ants. They often feed close to their roost site, returning to the roost several times during the night's feeding.
Orange Leaf-nosed Bats are vulnerable to disturbance from human visitors to cave roosts, destruction of caves by mining, and loss of feeding habitat by clearing and land degradation from agriculture.
