Feeding ecology and diet

These bats are nocturnal, typically becoming active shortly after sunset and feeding on various insects well into the night. Recent studies reveal that the diet of Kerivoula papuensis may primarily be spiders rather than insects. Analyses of fecal matter indicate that more than 90% of its diet consists of arachnids.

Common bentwing bats (Miniopterus schreibersi) are thought to be extremely gregarious. (Photo by Brock Fenton. Reproduced by permission.)
