The Pipistrelle is a very small bat commonly found throughout Europe. It is small enough that it could fit in a matchbox. Like most bat species, the pipistrelles roost and sleep during the day and hunt at night. They often roost in buildings. During colder winter months, pipistrelles will gather together in large groups in caves. The females will each have one baby a year. These bats are great at helping each other out, because when a mother bat goes out to eat, her baby will stay in a common nursery area with other baby bats.
Pipistrelles are a type of bat that eat insects. They use echolocation to find insects as they are flying through the air.
