**I am a trained Bat Rehab and Rescuer. Please only admire bats from afar =] ** These are Juvenile Red Bats who I had rescued and was able to release. There is one male and 3 females Males have red hair while females are chestnut-colored with whitish frosting on the tips of the fur. Females can have 2-5 pups in May/June. When they are about 6-8 weeks they begin to fly and live a solitary life. These juveniles are about 5 weeks old.
They roost in trees and are a solitary bat. They have been found to hibernate under leaf litter on the ground. Their wintering habits are still being researched on how far they migrate.
If you look at picture number 4 you can see the male red. He has bright red fur while the other three have a gray/white dusting on their fur. The mom will roost with her young until they are old enough to fly. Since they live in trees they will hang onto each other and their mom. These little guys were found on the ground without their mom when they were only about 2 weeks old. They were successfully released =]
