Schreiber's Long Fingered Bat
Bats | Namibia
Introduction: The most remarkable aspect of the Schreibers's long-fingered bat is the colossal colonies that are found in deep, dark, moist caves. At times over 300,000 individuals have been recorded, a feature that can be witnessed in Namibia whilst staying at Arnhem Caves and Restcamp. The heat emitted from such numbers have been known to change the temperature of a cave. An insectivorous bat, it may live for at least 20 years.
Diet: Small, soft bodied insects, especially over concentrations of water at night.
Colouring: Dark brown or charcoal coloured fur.
Size: Average body length 110mm. Weight: 10g
