The Arnhem Sheath-tailed Bat, Taphozous kapalgensis, is a species of sheath-tailed bat in the Emballonuridae family. It is found only in Australia. Bats are flying mammals in the order Chiroptera. The forelimbs of bats are webbed and developed as wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight. By contrast, other mammals said to fly, such as flying squirrels, gliding possums and colugos, glide rather than fly, and can only glide for short distances.
