The lesser false vampire is a bat living in South Asia and South East Asia. Its wingspan is about 30 centimeters and they have very large ears, which join at the base. They live in groups of 3‐30 individuals, depending on the availability of food. They use echolocation to find food as well as to orientate themselves while flying.
