Extinct Bat Was 3 Times Larger Than Average And Ate Everything, Fossil Shows

The fossil of an extinct animal in New Zealand belonged to an enormous, burrowing bat that lived millions of years ago. Researchers described the newly discovered species based on teeth and bones from the creature, according to a study in the journal Scientific Reports. All of the remains point to a bat that weighed about 40 grams and those teeth suggest it ate both the meat of small invertebrates and lots of plants.
