The yellow bellied sheath tailed bat is a northern Australian bat not native to Victoria, even though they have been found on occasions in Victoria. They seem to come to Victoria at the start of Autumn. I live on the coast near Warrnambool and one season had 5 of these bats come into care. They are also a confirmed carrier of the lyssavirus
