Caption

Lesser large-eared horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus philippinensis) hanging in a tree. This horseshoe bat, so called because of its horseshoe-shaped noseleaf, lives in forested regions of south- east asia (including the Philippines and Borneo) and Australia. It mainly roosts in caves during the day, emerging at night to feed on insects. Its noseleaf and large ears are adaptations for echolocation, the ultrasound sense that many bat species use to catch their prey and avoid flying into obstacles when flying at night.
