Smallwikipedialogo Wikipedia has an article about:

Bats are a group of wild, flying mammals of generally small size that feed on other small mammals, insects, reptiles, or fruit. Although the majority of bats are small, a few larger varieties exist.[2] Bats are almost all nocturnal.[3]


Most bats are roughly the size of a small bird although larger bats exist. All bats are adept at perceiving their surroundings in the dark though the precise mechanics differ from species, with most bats using a form of blindsight,[3] shadowhunter bats using darkvision, and fire bats projecting light around them.[3]


There are many varieties of unusual bat species, some of which are listed below.

Magical bats of the Underdark.[4]
Deep bat (draghazar)

An unusually large bat native to the elemental planes.

A type of large, predatory bat touched with the power of the Shadowfell or Plane of Shadow.
