The largest urban bat colony in the world lives under the Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin, Texas. Every night from March through November after the sunset 1.5 million Mexican free-tail bats emerge from under the bridge and go hunting. The bats' diet consists of flying ants, moths, dragonflies, wasps, gnats, beetles, and mosquitoes. Austin’s colony collectively eats about 30,000 pounds (13600 kg) of insects every night, with each bat consuming up to two-thirds of its body weight in bugs.
