Big Brown Bat
Insects would rule the world if it weren’t for their predators. Big Brown Bats are voracious. At night, they swoop low over the lagoon to gorge on night-flying insects. Few bat studies have been done in the reserve, but our guess is that they come here to hunt at night and retreat to some nearby barn or shed to roost during the day.
An adult female Big Brown Bat can eat her body weight in insects each night.
