| Coiban Mastiff Bats are locally common on some parts of the Pacific Slope from Chiapas, Mexico, to Panama, where they inhabit dry deciduous and semi-deciduous forests. They are also found in towns, where roofs make good roosting places. It can get very hot in the daytime under corrugated roofs, and they seem to tolerate high temperatures well. They prey on beetles and other flying insects.
