Brief Summary

Read full entry


Little is known about the biology of this rarely recorded bat. Female Wroughton's free-tailed bats that were found in December had newborn young, or were on the verge of giving birth, while specimens collected in May were not pregnant and had no young. This suggests that the breeding season is near the end of autumn. Like other Otomops species, Wroughton's free-tailed bat may be usually solitary, or associate in small groups (2).
