Bats were a group of wild, flying animals of generally small size that fed on other small mammals, insects, reptiles, or fruit. Although the majority of bats were small, a few larger varieties existed.[5] Bats were almost all nocturnal.[6]

DescriptionEdit

Most bats were roughly the size of a small bird although larger bats existed. All bats were adept at perceiving their surroundings in the dark though the precise mechanics differed by species, with most bats using a form of blindsight,[6] or darkvision in the case of shadowhunter bats.[5]

EcologyEdit
