Hoary Bat

(Lasiurus cinereus)

Lasiurus cinereus

This is the most widespread bat in the Americas, and the only bat occurring in Hawaii. They are heavily-furred bats with the fur extending over the tail. They spend summer days concealed in the foliage of trees. They are seldom encountered by humans. Hoary Bats normally have twins.
