This exhibit provokes a new appreciation for the often misunderstood creatures of the night. The Bat Jungle exhibit is the culmination of 40 years of research conducted throughout the world by Dr. Richard LaVal a long time member of the Monteverde community.

At the Monteverde Bat Jungle you will learn about the diversity of bats, the abundance of bats, where bats roost, what bats eat (including such things as fruit, nectar, insects, frogs, fish, birds, lizards, and mice), bat wings compared with bird wings, echolocation, the fantastic faces of bats, vampire bats and baby bats. The bat jungle has more than 40 live bats of 7 species in a huge flight space (about 52 square meters) that is designed to look like a tropical cloud forest at night. You can watch the bats visit the bat feeders for fruit and nectar all from inside of a Bat Habitat from behind a glass enclosed viewing area.
