Yellow-winged Bat (Lavia frons)
…a species of false vampire bat (Megadermatidae) that is native to the continent of Africa, where it is known to occur throughout the middle of Africa ranging from Senegal east to Ethiopia and south to the northern Democratic Republic of the Congo. Yellow-winged bats typically inhabit woodland and savannahs where they usually roost in acacia trees and thorn bushes near bodies of water. Unlike other Megadermatid bats, Lavia frons feeds only on insects and will not take small vertebrates. L. frons is a “sit and wait predator”, listening for prey and striking when a potential prey item flies by.
