Ombra Vespertos are bat-like creatures that were released alongside Cielarka Cimos, Senvida Nagantos, and Monta Selos.They can be found in the Cupboard or brought from the Genome Splicer.


Growth[]

Capsule[]

"Uniform bumps encircle this deep red capsule."

Young[]

"Double wings grace this juvenile’s back, and it spends much of its time flying from roosting spot to roosting spot, either gliding or flapping as necessary. It is sensitive to light and prefers darker environments, which it navigates using echolocation. Very agile in the air, it won’t hesitate to show off to audience, performing backflips and loops and other complicated maneuvers by switching between wing pairs."

Adult[]

"Ombra Vespertos use their lower wings for active flight and their upper wings to glide as they sweep through the darkness of the caverns they call home. Colonies that dwell near water sources feed mainly on Senvida Nagantos, which they hunt by stalking the fish among the bioluminescent aquatic grass that grows within underground ponds and slow-moving streams. Those that roost in dryer environments eat Cielarka Cimos. Their guano encourages the growth of Kaverno Musko, a moss upon which Cielarka Cimos feed. Insect-feeding Ombra Vespertos tend to have brighter patterns, perhaps due to nutrients from their food source. Fast-breeding, with as many as three litters a year, Ombra Vespertos populations are kept in check by Monta Selos, their only natural predators. They rely on stealth and speed for evasion, as their claws, while strong enough to snatch a fish from the water or crush the hard shell of a Cielarka Cimo, are too weak to do more than scratch a Monta Selo’s tough hide. Communal by nature, Ombra Vespertos travel in groups, called flights, of at least three when hunting, and a roost may be home to as many as several hundred. It is not uncommon for a nursing female to adopt an orphaned pup and care for it as her own. Ombra Vespertos mate for life, and a widowed Ombra Vesperto rarely seeks out a new mate."

Trivia[]

The scale gene also affects an Ombra Vesperto's eye color, as illustrated in the table below:

TFO uses Esperanto as a basis for creature names (although it's not always exact—accents are ignored and spellings occasionally shift). “Ombra Vesperto” means “Shadow Bat.”
