And here was a great one. The ever-observant camp kids heard a buzzy squeaking noise. It ended up belonging to a colony of bats!
Sam said the Northern Long-eared bats have longer ears, Big Browns have smaller more rounded ears. I looked up a little info on another site and it said the tragus, the triangular fleshy part inside the ear, is more pointed on Myotis species. Myotis septentrionalis also has ears a bit longer than their snout and fur on their muzzle, the area around their mouth.
Number three was sleeping with its little tongue sticking out,
just like my cat does when she is content. How adorable!
In this picture you can see the triangular tragus and fur on the muzzle.
My friend Linsi found a few more in another crevice. I am guessing we had about 20 total.
This one had to have its own private lodgings. There
always has to be a prima donna of the group!
