Seasonal insectivory of the Antillean fruit-eating bat (Brachyphylla cavernarum)

Abstract : This paper reports seasonal variations in the insect component of the Antillean fruit-eating bat (Brachyphylla cavernarum) diet based on the study of guano from a colony on Guadeloupe. Fecal pellet content reveals that insects, mainly phytophagous scarab beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeoidea), can form an important part of Antillean fruit-eating bat feeding patterns, primarily at the beginning of the dry season.
