Honduran White Bat

A Presentation by Lucy

Anatomy

A Honduran white bat is one of the smallest bats on earth, with an average of 3.7 to 4.7 cm. It's fuzzy and white with orange on their ears, face, nose, and parts of their legs. They have a thin membrane over their scull, which protects them from the sun.

Location

Honduran white bats live in the lowland rainforests around eastern Honduras, like their name says, northern Nicaragua, eastern Costa Rica, and western Panama. They only live in areas near heliconia plants, because they shelter themselves under their leaves.
