Egyptian slit-faced bat has a deep slit that runs from the base of the ears to the nostrils and between the nose leaves. Their fur is silky and long, with colors varying from grey to murky brown, to light red, and with a white to light grey stomach.
They often occupy two roosts, one for resting during the daytime, whereas they only spend a few hours in the night roost before going out to forage. They are generalist-opportunistic feeders, which means their diet consists of a wide range of prey, according to season and prey availability, such as Coleoptera during the spring, Orthoptera during the summer, Hemiptera in autumn, and Lepidoptera during the winter.
