Ghost Bat

Ghost bat (Macroderma gigas), also known as the false vampire bat is native to Australia. Named for the extremely thin membrane of its wings that makes it appear ghostly at night. They have grey fur on their backs and pale grey or white fur on their undersides. They have long, narrow wings, but no tail, averaging 4.3″ in length. They have large ears for long distance hearing, and very sharp teeth so they can attack prey.
