Image processing: Dr. Ted Macrini Image processing: Dr. Jessie Maisano Publication Date: 09 May Views: whole specimen head only ankle wrist. It is a member of Phyllostomidae, a group characterized by a spear-shaped noseleaf. The function of the noseleaf is unknown, but scientists suspect that it plays a role in projection of echolocation calls, which are emitted through the nose in some species including all phyllostomids. Carollia is a fruit-eating bat that specializes on fruits of the genus Piper.
It is often the most common bat species in regions where it occurs. The specimen was made available for scanning by Dr. Simmons, and funding for scanning and image processing was provided by a National Science Foundation Digital Libraries Initiative grant to Dr. The entire specimen was scanned by Matthew Colbert on 26 March along the coronal axis for a total of slices, each slice 0.

Seba's short-tailed bat
Found in the moist evergreen and dry deciduous forests, usually below 1,m but up to 1,m. Two reproductive periods. The larger one coincides with peak fruit productions, June-August and the other with the blooming of flowers at the end of the dry season Feb. Gestation is days.
Seba's short-tailed bat Carollia perspicillata is a common and widespread bat species in the family Phyllostomidae. However, they still employ echolocation as a primary method of orientation. Groups of C. Males are territorial of their roosts, and will often fight other intruding males by means of boxing. Males will actively try to recruit females to mate with for their harems through the use of vocalization and hovering. Gestation periods are about days, and young are born precocial. Mothers will communicate with their offspring though vocalization, and it has even been shown that a mother can discriminate between the calls of its offspring and the offspring of other females.
