Jamaican Fruit-eating Bat
Animals of All Regions
Jamaican fruit-eating bats construct tents using large tree leaves as protection against weather and possibly also against predators.
In order to help navigate through the dark nights, bats resort to echolocation. These sound pulses are emitted from the bat’s noseleaf while its mouth is closed, and are often very low intensity. The echoes from these sound pulses help the bat navigate and find food. When hunting for food, sight and smell are used in addition to echolocation.
