This quirky illustration accurately depicts the ghost bat (Macroderma gigas) named for their thin wing membranes, which appear ghostly pale at night. Ghost bat numbers are in decline and their range has contracted to the tropics of northern Australia, and the Pilbara, with only around 5,000 thought to occur in the wild. Ghost bats are the biggest microbat in Australia and the country's only carnivorous bat, with very sharp teeth for attacking prey such as frogs, lizards and other small animals. They have grey fur on their backs and pale grey or white fur on their undersides. They also have large ears for long-distance hearing.
