 en Indian False Vampire Bat Feeding on Myotis
ZHANG Li-biao, ZHANG Wei, ZHANG Shu-yi

Abstract

We captured two Megaderma lyra check for this species in other resources (Megadermatidae, Chiroptera) males in Jinlun Cave, Mashan County, Guangxi Province on December 10, 2004. The two males were killed for another experiment, however we collected their stomachs for examination. The stomach contents of these two bats were examined and the remains of other bats species were found, including dentes, hind-foot, skeleton and hair. By careful examination of the dentes we identified that the upper-dental formula was 2.1.3.3. This formula coincided with Myotis, confirming that the Indian false vampire bat feeds on Myotis. We did not find any remains of insects in these two samples.
