Dire bats were giant bats the size of horses.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Dire bats averaged 200 pounds (90 kilograms) and had leathery wings that stretched fifteen feet (4.6 meters) from end to end. Their bodies were covered in shaggy fur.[1]

BehaviorEdit

Dire bats hunted at night and rested during the day. They were stealthy and used echolocation to locate prey.[1]

These bats were easy to startle and tended to kill or drive away any other encountered creatures with their bite.[1]

EcologyEdit

Dire bats flourished in the deepest regions of the Underdark.[2]

ReputationEdit

Dire bats were favored by the orc god Shargaas.[3] They were used as mounts by members of the Shadovar military[4] and Zhentarim skymages.[5] Shield dwarves of Oghrann in the Upperdark kept large populations of dire bats to use as mounts as well.[6]
