Caption: The common tent-making bat (Uroderma bilobatum) cuts the midribs of large leaves to form a tent-like structure where up to 100 individuals can roost together. They are fruit-eaters and play an important role in tropical reforestation throughout most of Latin America. This one is taking a fig in Costa Rica.
