The California Leaf-nosed Bat is the only bat in North America, north of Mexico, with large ears and leaf-like projections on the nose. They are found throughout the Sonoran Desert (which just barely dips into CA) and live in caves, old mines and rock shelters. Leaf-nosed bats eat a variety of insects and capture them in flight and off vegetation. They are the only bats in North America known to catch caterpillars and are among the very few insect-eating bats that supplement their diets with cactus fruit. The average life-span of a leaf-nosed bat is 20-30 years in the wild.
