Also known as the tent-making bat, these bats are endemic to Honduras and surrounding countries. They are 1 of 22 species of bats that uses this method to shelter themselves. One tent usually houses 1-15 individuals.
They are faced with habitat loss as their homes are converted into farmlands. Another problem they faced is that they rely on a specific type of fig as their food source.
There has been at least 30% decline in their population for the past 2 decades.
This bat has the versatility of being hung face up or face down.
