Jasmane Hoary Wattle Microbat - Australia Zoo

28th October 2013
Age: Adult Sex: Female Weight: 11 grams

Found: By a member of the public floating in a dam.

Transported to: The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital by the member of the public who found her.

Veterinary Assessment: Jasmane was very plump and wet when Dr Claude examined her. An x-ray revealed that Jasmane had no fractures but she was not alone. Dr Claude found two tiny babies inside Jasmane when she read the x-ray.

Treatment: Due to her time immersed in the dam, Dr Claude prescribed a short course of antibiotics to prevent any infection from inhaled water. Jasmane was then admitted to our Nursery I.C.U. to spend some time in a humidicrib to warm up.

Outcome: Jasmane was placed with a vaccinated bat rehabilitator for her recuperation and has since delivered two healthy babies. The small family will be released back into their territory.

AZWH Fact: Hoary Wattle Microbats are just one species of approximately 58 throughout Australia. They use echolocation (sonar) to find their food whilst on the wing. Their main diet is insects and they eat many times their own body weight a night. Microbats have very good eyesight. Some species use eyesight to hunt crawling insects like spiders, crickets and caterpillars.
