Nocturnal Week: Spotted Bat (Euderma maculatum)
Bats are the classic nocturnal mammals, to the point of their nightmarish association with vampires and death. But they’re not so bad! I have a couple of books about building bat houses, and when Ted and I get our new place, we’re going to set one up. This particular bat, which has lovely black-and-white spots and gigantic, complicated ears, was a request from Herman in the comments of this blog. Keep the requests coming, everybody!
Also, I did fall behind on the mammals again this past week. I’m getting them all caught up tonight, and then we’ll just keep on going.
