The dragon flashbat is a new species of bat not found in polar or dessert climates as they, like ordinary bats, are often found in caves. It appears as if they have some of the same physical designs as a dragonfly considering how their pointy ears or wings sometimes resembles the wings of a dragonfly as well as their facial features almost being somewhat identical to one itself. However, this is ironic considering that these bats also eat grasshoppers aside from various bugs such as mosquitoes and spiders for example. They're also the kinds of mammals that are not to be taken lightly as they can hiss at their victims to scare them away; if threatened or if their living area is invaded, they can screech loudly to alert the other flashbats and attack after closing in on their victim. They will automatically attack any human on sight even if they can see them from far away.
Although they're often called "dragonbats", there is a reason why they're considered "flashbats": Since they could see and hear things from 40-60 feet away, maybe longer than that, if they sense light, they can omit smaller screeches to warn the perpetrator to leave as long as the light isn't directly flashed upon them. There is a rumor that their skin, for unknown reasons, reacts poorly to light---even flashlights are a huge problem. If one is brave enough to directly shine their flashlights at these kinds of bats, especially at a dangerously close range, they can screech as loud as 150 decibels before lunging at the person. So, in other words, they don't like being flashed by light because if you did that, they'll flash at you with their terrifying screeches before attacking. Using the most powerful forms of ultraviolet light can completely paralyze these bats for a greater period of time before they can recover.
Their saliva often carries rabies, which gives them an advantage when attacking humans or certain animals---their rabies are so powerful that it can first overwhelm the immune system within minutes and then attack the brain within mere seconds. The rabies from these kinds of bats can be enough to send a human or an animal in a zombie-like killing spree, so there is a possibility that zombie outbreaks can occur. However, their rabies will control the host for at least two weeks before the host immediately dies, so if a human is infected by their rabies, they will likely spend the final two weeks of their lives acting like rabid, fast running infected before dying. Because of this, only the fewest of these bats will be carefully put on display when it comes to a zoo, albeit in darker underground rooms. In some places, people will restrict access to multiple caves and gold mines, as the dragon flashbats often reside there. Under dire situations, they will be subjected to mass extermination as a last resort if they infect too many people and animals.
Strangely, despite their ferocious nature, they seemed to be completely repelled by various kinds of perfume and cologne as well as bug sprays, mainly due to their dragonfly DNA and designs---this is another way to deal with such flying mammals besides ultraviolet light, as an unarmed human sprayed with excessive amounts of perfume, cologne, or bug spray can simply walk in a cave infested with these bats; their scents can quickly awaken them from their slumber and force them to hightail the area within seconds. If a bat inhales these scents for too long one too many times, they can fall in a coma, though death will be drastically slower if the person does not stomp on their heads multiple times to kill them.
Despite their rabies, dragon flashbats are a good source of guano, which can be used to effectively fertilize crops; additionally, crops that are grown from soil containing guano will be more likely to produce a mysterious scent that can ward off pests, minimizing as much damage from locusts and bugs as possible. In fact, these bats can sometimes create their smaller homes and nests out of guano itself. Second, they are often a decent source of meat, although one must wash them very effectively and then leave it in the sun to dry in order to completely wash off the rabies; the meat can eventually be cooked from there once the rabies are gone. (They hate wine, but honey seems to have no effect on them because they also enjoy honey as much as bears do) Their wings are shown to have a lot of protein, although they are also sometimes crafted into sharp boomerangs used to take down smaller birds as well as capture fruit from a tree.
