|Red Bat (Lasiurus - subspecies unknown) eats insects. The first Red Bat seen in the Cayman Islands was photographed hanging alone in a Sweetwood tree in 1999. The fur exactly matched the color of the drying brownish-red leaves. Before that it was unrecorded here and remains extremely rare, with two more individuals being captured in the Botanic Park in April of 2000. It is not known if these bats are recent arrivals, or if they have always been here. They roost alone in foliage and are the only bats known to commonly give birth to more than one pup at a time. New record, Very Rare.
