Lesser Long-Eared Bat

I have a bat! She is in for a few days of R&R then I'll let her go when I'm sure there is nothing wrong with her.

Note the gloves! This species is a confirmed carrier of lyssavirus - one LLEB was found with it, but no others so far. Even so, you have to be careful.

She doesn't like being handled.

Not frothing at the mouth, just finishing off worm guts.

Her ear is stilled a little curled. When she flies, her ears spread out straight. They're very large.
