When a bat is going through it's hibernation phase, bats have the ability to sleep through the entire winter without needing to consume food and water. Should a bat find itself without food or water in normal, every day conditions bats usually not be able to last any longer than a couple days. Most bats will need to consume food or water within 3 days for survival.
