Mediterranean Horseshoe Bat
Grayish-brown upperparts; paler underparts; darker wings; horseshoe-like nose, which gives it its name. Distinguished from other bats by its finger anatomy that prevents the wings from wrapping around the entire body.
Nocturnal. Roosts in colonies. Hangs upside down at rest. Uses echolocation for navigation.
Feeds on insects such as moths and beetles.
Endangered species. Occurs in woodlands and olive groves in the Northern Highlands, including the Dibbin Nature Reserve and Jerash. Prefers caves near water sources.
