How Long Can Bats Live without Food or Water?

Answer

The length of time that bats can live without food or water depends on the species of bat, the size of the bat, whether or not the bat is nursing young bats, and the time of year. Most bats can survive for 12 to 24 hours without food; the smaller bat species can survive for a longer period of time because they need less food to begin with. Female bats who are nursing young bats need to eat more often than other bats; in fact a nursing female bat will eat 110% of her weight per night.
