Ecology and Behavior

  • These bats typically are always in the company of other bats within the same species
  • These bats also are mostly seen feeding on butterflies, moths, crickets and other insect species.
  • This bat is particularly small which is ironic to the name given as "greater funnel-eared bat"
  • Not much is known about these bats so what all they do is not entirely documented

Things that could've been done to help prevent endangerment

  • Made the area a safe haven for the bat so the bat could begin to repopulate and begin to spread out.
  • Take a few of the bats into domestication to begin manually repopulating by means of breeding.
