The warm, humid climate of central Florida provides ideal habitat for Seminole bats. Average temperatures range from the 60s°F (15°C) in winter to over 90°F (32°C) in summer. Rainfall exceeds 50 inches (1270 mm) per year, with more precipitation during the rainy season from June to September.
These conditions support dense oak hammocks, pine flatwood forests, cypress swamps, and tropical vegetation like palm trees where the bats roost and forage. Plentiful flying insect populations provide ample prey. Urban areas also provide roost sites in palms and access to water sources like ponds and lakes. The Seminole bat thrives across the diverse ecosystems of central Florida.
