Cute Honduran White Bats

These adorable Honduran white bats are poking their noses out from under the leaves of a heliconia plant in Costa Rica. They belong to one of only three species of bats whose fur is entirely white.

Their leafy hideaway is a clue to the Honduran white bat’s other common name: the Caribbean tent-making bat. They gather leaves to use as tents that shade them during the heat of the day.
