Myzopoda are a genus of bats commonly known as old-world sucker foot bats.
Like the South American sucker foot bats they have tiny suction pads on their wrists and ankles which enables them to latch onto objects, even smooth surfaces. However they are so distantly related from any other bats in that they have been given their own family. They are the most basal genus in their subfamily Noctilionoidea.
The genus only exists in Madagascar, but fossil evidence indicates they once existed in Africa.
