Bats are air-dwelling mammals that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in both the Pride Lands and the Outlands.


Botswanan long-eared bats are nocturnal mammals of the order Chiroptera. Their forelimbs have webbed wings, making them the only mammals truly capable of flight. They let out chirps that bounce back to them from their environment or insects that serve as potential prey, a talent owned by all bats called echolocation.


In the Real World

Bats are small, winged nocturnal mammals with large pointed ears and relatively flat faces.

In The Lion Guard

The bats in The Lion Guard are brown with pink inner ears and a tuft of white fur on their foreheads.
