Facts about the tent-making bat

These "tent-making" bats are small fruit-eaters that chew across the large leaves to cause the sides to droop down in the form of a tent.

Unlike most bats, which make no nest or shelter of any sort, the tent-making bat is known to cut a row of small holes in a palm frond so the edges droop, forming a sort of tent under which the bat hangs.
