Nightwings are agile pack predators native to Futurazoic, an alternative Earth. They are nocturnal, and are some of the most feared animals on the planet.

EvolutionEdit

Bat

The Big Brown Bat, the Nightwings distant ancestor.

Nightwings evolved from the Big Brown Bat, a common, insectivorous bat found in North America during the Human Era. Once larger predators such as coyotes and wolves died out, a major niche was left vacant. The Big Brown Bats were free to move up a few steps in the food chain.

PhysiologyEdit

AppearanceEdit

Nightwings are enormous bats, with red eyes and a mouth full of razor sharp teeth. The desert variety has a much longer neck than other sub-species.

FlightEdit

In order to fly, Nightwings have evolved lightweight bones in a honeycomb pattern. This structure is light, yet strong, perfect for killing prey on the wing.

BehaviourEdit

Nightwings live in packs of up to twelve individuals. During the day, they roost in tall trees (the desert variety sleeps in caves).

During the breeding season, males will sing for the females.

Hunting StrategyEdit

When hunting, Nightwings will use their echolocation to seek out lone prey, such as a Mison or a a Helmet Bird. Then, one will fly into the animal, stunning it. The rest of the pack will then descend, and finish it off.
