| Golden bats have long, crinkly, golden-brown fur and very large, pointed ears. They are large enough to eat small lizards, and scientists found the remains of a bird in the feces of this species. They also feast on large beetles and katydids. They are known to roost in limestone caves, and a small group was found roosting in a hollow log. Babies are born at the start of the rainy season.
