In Real Life

Ectophylla alba(Honduran White Bats)

The Honduran White Bat is a specie of bat in the family Phyllostomatidae. They are tiny bats with an average length of 3.7 - 4.7 cm. They hold their name from the fluffy white coat they have.

It can be found wet, evergreen forest and tall secondary growth. It roosts in groups of four to eight individuals in tents made from small to medium sized Heliconia or other understory plants by cutting along the veins of heliconia leaves. When they roost, they hang close together upside down in the center of the leaf. The tents help protect them during the daytime from rain, the hot sun and predators. In fact, the bats choose leaves that are two metres off the ground, high enough to be out of the reach of terrestrial predators.

Compared to many other bats which feed themselve with blood, the Honduran White Bat's diet only based on fruit pulp and seeds of small understory figs.

During the day, Honduran white bats roost under their tents. At night, they emerge to search for food. The bats are so confident in their concealment within the tent that they will not take flight unless the main stem of the leaf is disturbed. since Honduran white bats live mainly under heliconia leaves, rainforest destruction is a serious threat. For this species to survive, rainforests in the Central American lowlands that have heliconia must remain standing.

Natural predators may include opossums, snakes and other carnivorous animals. Nonetheless, urbanisation is the main threat to this species. In Costa Rica, this species has declined as growth of the human population and resulting urbanisation has resulted in loss and degradation of habitat. This species may have strong habitat and food preferences

Trivia

Ectophylla alba(Honduran White Bats) helds by a human hand
  • The scientific name of this species, Ectophylla, is derived from the Greek ecktos, meaning 'outside' and phyllon, meaning 'leaf', and refers to its distinctive, leaf-shaped nose. The species name alba is Latin for 'white', making reference to the eye-catching white fur of the bat.
  • The Honduran white bat is the only species belonging to the genus Ectophylla and is one of only a few species of bats from Latin America to roost in tents.
