Onychonycteris Specuncola is one of the few omnivores I've seen on the island. They seem to live primarily off the mushrooms and moss within the caves, but they attack almost any non-insect on sight.

They avoid Titanoboa whenever possible which leads me to believe the snake to be a natural predator of Onychonycteris.

While flying in the dark caves would be difficult for any creature, Onychonycteris ability to use echolocation has allowed it to adapt perfectly. It can be found idly flying around the caves as often as it can be found hanging from bits of the cave ceilings.

Domesticated

Not large enough to be used as mounts, and not strong enough to carry much, Onychonycteris still works well as a guard animal.

Whether protecting a vacant home, or members of a tribe, their relatively vicious nature has its uses.

 
— The Dossier

The Onychonycteris (Aww-nick-oh-nick-teh-riss), more commonly known as the Onyc or Bat, is a small omnivorous flying mammal found on the Ark. The Onychonycteris eats mushrooms and moss withing the caves.

Appearance

Onychonycteris, unlike birds, keep themselves aloft by use of long fingers which are connected with a wing membrane. Bats are good and enduring flyers, but they cannot move around in any other way. Unable to sit, bats must cling to a cave niche and remain hanging upside down to relax or to sleep. Bats are lightweight, with short and mostly brown to gray fur. They have arrowheadlike incisors, which help to part small prey animals.

Behavior

Onychonycteris usually fly around in caves and become aggressive when players get too close. Their pathing is currently very poor, but be careful around corners - they may attack you from the side! Due to their protocooperation with the insects inhabiting caves they can turn aggressive towards player even if they have attacked a nearby Araneomorphus or Pulmonoscorpius. When close they will slowly fly to you to attack, when hit it will fly faster and will be harder to hit.

Domestication

Not large enough to be used as mounts, and not strong enough to carry much, Onychonycteris still works well as a guard animal. Whether protecting a vacant home, or members of a tribe, their relatively vicious nature has its uses.
