Yellow House Bat

Bats | Namibia

Introduction: Yellow house bats have bulldog type facial features and are slightly larger than the lesser yellow house bat. It is associated with habitats such as woodland savannah. By day they roost in hollows and cracks in large trees and by night in isolated sections of roofing and cracks in the walls of Yellow Houses. Colonies of roosting yellow house bat are so quiet, occupants inside are usually not aware of their presence.

Distribution: Northern Namibia from Etosha National Park stretching to Epupa Falls and the Kunene River, along the Kavango River, Zambezi Region (formerly the Caprivi Strip) to Victoria Falls.

Diet: Individuals normally take 2hr night-time feeding sessions, catching insects in their wings.

Colouring: Adults have a bright yellow belly with short brown fur tinged with either olive, red or grey. The wings are translucent and brown.

Size: Average body length 130mm. Weight: 27g.
