Notes on bats in the diets of Ghost Bats (Macroderma gigas: Megadermatidae) in the Pilbara region of Western Australia

WA Museum Records and Supplements | Updated 1 years ago

ABSTRACT – Claramunt et al. (2019), published a list of vertebrate prey items taken by Ghost Bats in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia but did not identify the bat wing bones that were contained in their samples. We identified those bones to extend (from four to nine species) knowledge of other bats consumed by Ghost Bats in the Pilbara showing that bats are an important component of their diets.
