Spotted Bat

(Euderma maculatum)

Euderma maculatum

Day roosts for this high-flying bat are most often rock faces on high cliffs. These bats crawl with ease on both horizontal and vertical surfaces, helping their movement in crevices. They have a loud, low-pitched echolocation call that is audible to the human ear. One of the rarest and most beautiful bats in the U.S.

Spotted Bat rests on the glove of a field researcher taking part in mist netting and census study of bats.
