Facts about the golden-tipped bat
The Golden-tipped Bat is known to utilise the nest of scrub-wrens and gerygones.
The slit-faced and golden-tipped bats are by no means the only microbats that take food other than insects, and some of the others have evolved to prey on many other food types, ranging from mammals, fish and blood to fruit, nectar and pollen.
