Caption

Eastern horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus megaphyllus) hanging in a cave. This horseshoe bat, so called because of its horseshoe-shaped noseleaf, lives in eastern 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.
