THE PEKAPEKA – NZ LONG-TAILED BAT

Pekapeka is the Māori name for the New Zealand long-tailed bat, New Zealand’s only native land mammal.

They roost and raise their young in tree cavities and occasionally caves. The Pekapeka is part of the microbat suborder and they use echolocation (very high-pitched sounds mostly above the range of human hearing) to navigate. The sounds they make are reflected back, and they use these reflections to locate and avoid objects in their path and to hunt. For this reason the Pekapeka will be able to navigate through those dark tightly wooded fairways with ease.
