Bats
Ceduna  being close to the Nullarbor and its caves and cliffs   has its  fair share of the local bat population. Sometimes people bring them into the rescue center to be taken care of . The pictures above  are of  a chocolate wattled bat  which are local to this area.  As you can see  we keep  them well  fed on mealie  worms . Chocolate Wattled Bats roost mainly in hollows in old trees, as well as disused birds' nests. They roost in caves in the Nullarbor area of South Australia as well as many of the off shore islands of the Nuyts archipelago. They roost together in colonies of 20 to a few hundred bats. Chocolate Wattled Bats feed mainly on small moths. They are quick and efficient hunters and can be seen to  twist and turn while hunting for their prey. These  Bats are vulnerable to loss of roost sites in tree hollows and loss of feeding grounds by deforesting ,and  clearing for agriculture and housing. Chocolate Wattled Bats hibernate during winter
