Smoky Bats: Furipteridae - Behavior And Reproduction


Little is known about the species of bats in this family. Because they are small, agile flyers in isolated populations, smoky bats are difficult to catch and study. It is known that these bats roost in colonies (groups) between 100 and 300 individuals.

Like all bats, the smoky bats become active at night (nocturnal). The long and broad shape of their wings allows them to fly slowly and with great agility to forage, search, for moths and butterflies. This also gives them the ability to forage for prey (animals eaten for food) in dense forest undergrowth.
