The Sinaloan Mastiff Bat belongs to a family of bat species known as "free tailed bats" due to the long mouse-like tail. They are insectivorous species famous for their long and narrow wings that allow swift flight. These bats can reach great altitudes of up to 3000m above ground and members of this family can fly over 160km in a single night.
