| These bats eat a variety of fruit and include some insects in their diet. They have most often been found in second-growth forest - where the original trees have been cut down or lost to a fire and new growth has taken its place - and in clearings or on plantations. Males and females often roost separately, in caves, hollow trees, tunnels, or culverts. Unlike most bats, they are sometimes seen crawling on the ground or on branches.
