Blindsight (Ex): Bats can "see" by emitting high-frequency sounds, inaudible to most other creatures, that allow them to locate objects and creatures within 120 feet. A silence spell negates this and forces the bat to rely on its weak vision, which has a maximum range of 10 feet.
Skills: Bats receive a +4 racial bonus to Spot and Listen checks. These bonuses are lost if Blindsight is negated.
