The postnatal growth, infant mortality, and development of thermoregulative ability related to maternal nursing behavior in <i>Rhinolophus ferrumequinum nippon</i> were investigated in abandoned mines. Forearm length increased rapidly and attained 90.4% of the adult size at 16-18 days old. Thermoregulative ability also was established by 16-18 days. Pre-weaning mortality averaged 3.6%. Mothers with infants whose thermoregulative ability was insufficient remarkably reduced their feeding time to keep infants warm by embracing them. The intensive investment of maternal labor in maintaining a suitable thermal environment may promote postnatal growth and increase infant survival.
