The California Leaf-nosed Bat is a very awesome bat. They live in colonies in southern California, southeastern Nevada, southern and northwestern Arizona, and south into Mexico. California Leaf-nosed Bats live in caves, rock shelters, and mines. They eat insects. This bat has night vision, so it can see well and hear very well. They can hear so well that they can detect the footsteps of a cricket. California Leaf-nosed Bats are COOL!
