silver-haired bat, male

Lasionycteris noctivagans

Description:

My cat killed this bat last night. There was a heavy wind storm, so I'm guessing that had something to do with it, since he doesn't usually manage to catch bats. Sorry, little bat!

Be careful handling bats! Dead ones especially, things carry mad diseases!
