Geographical areas historically characterized by a lower risk of diurnal avian predation should in theory allow bats to be active in daytime too, especially to forage. Oceanic islands are ideal for studying temporal niche shifts in bats since they often feature depauperate avian assemblages with fewer birds of prey. We report on the second case of diurnal activity known for an insular insectivorous bat, Hipposideros ruber on the island of Sao Tome (Gulf of Guinea). We present observations of… Expand
