Giant bats are much larger cousins of normal bat species. Giant bats look like smaller bat species but grow to be approximately 5ft long with a wingspan of 25ft. They are carnivores (or more accurately, handovers- blood-drinkers) and may attack humans if extremely hungry.

Giant bats generally avoid attacking creatures capable of easily defending themselves, preferring smaller weaker prey. Most will flee if wounded.

Blindsense (Ex): A giant bat notices and locates creatures within 40 feet. Opponents still have 100% concealment against a creature with blindsense.

Skills: *A giant bat has a +4 racial bonus on Spot and Listen checks. These bonuses are lost if its blindsense is negated.
