Pallid Bat

(Antrozous pallidus)

Antrozous pallidus

Pallid Bats are found in arid regions. This is a gregarious species, usually roosting in small colonies of 20 or mores. Unlike most bats, Pallids can walk on the ground, and they can hover or glide while looking for the beetles, grasshoppers, and scorpions they hunt. They are also known to occasionally eat lizards and rodents
