The Honduran white bat (Ectophylla alba) builds its own shelter by chewing along the middle vein of Heliconia leaves, causing them to fold, creating a tent like structure. living in small groups consisting of 1 male and a harem of females, they cluster under the fold of the leaves for protection and shelter.
They are one of only 2 known species of white furred bats, and it is believed that this unusual colouration acts as a form of camouflage. As sunlight filters through the leaves where they reside, it colours them with green and yellow hues allowing them to go unnoticed by predators.
