Bats are nocturnal flying mammals. The statistics presented here describe small, insectivorous bats.

With no effective means of attack, bats try to avoid combat with creatures larger than themselves whenever possible.

Blindsense (Ex): A bat notices and locates creatures within 20 feet. Opponents still have 100% concealment against a creature with blindsense.

Skills: A bat has a +4 racial bonus on Listen and Spot checks. These bonuses are lost if its blindsense is negated.

Bats as Familiars
Bats can serve as familiars for characters eligible to obtain familiars including arcane engineers, hexblades, mind weavers, shadowsworn, sorcerers, and wizards. Arcane casters with bat familiars gain a +3 bonus to Listen checks. Bat familiars are suitable for Tiny spellcasters.
