The roosts of Scotophilus leucogaster were located by radio-tracking in Mopani woodland in the Sengwa Wildlife Research Area in Zimbabwe between 14 January and 12 February 1982. Bats changed roost trees from one day to the next, usually staving within relatively small areas of woodland. Bats frequently moved between night and day roosts. This behavior made it impossible to predict the location of bats from one day to the next.
