Pekapeka is the Māori name for the New Zealand Long and Short tailed Bat and are New Zealand’s only native land mammals.
Long-tailed bats are found in more places than short-tailed bats. But both species are at risk.
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. Despite what you might think the Kea does not use echolocation
