This species can be found in dry, deciduous forest and second growth woodland (Reid, 1997). It roosts in caves, empty wells, culverts, hollow trees, and buildings (Reid, 1997). This bat feeds on fruits of Piper, Cecropia, Muntingia, and Solanum spp. (Fleming, 1988). Reproductive cycle appears to be bimodal, with pregnant females from December to May and July to October (LaVal and Rodriguez-H, 2002).
