The spectral bat (Vampyrum spectrum), also called the great false vampire bat or Linnaeus's false vampire bat, is a large, carnivorous leaf-nosed bat found in Mexico, Central America, and South America.
It is the only member of the genus Vampyrum; its closest living relative is the big-eared woolly bat.
It is the largest bat species in the New World, as well as the largest carnivorous bat: its wingspan is 0. 7–1. 0 m (2. 3–3. 3 ft).
It has a robust skull and teeth, with which it delivers a powerful bite to kill its prey.
Birds are frequent prey items, though it may also consume rodents, insects, and other bats.
