Silver Haired bat

Lasionycteris noctivagans


Male silver hair bat


Urban/suburban residential area


This bat was found indoors, which is rare for this species. They tend to hibernate in tree hollows and wood piles. They are sometimes inadvertently brought in on firewood. This bat is very dehydrated. Second photo was taken 30 hours after intake and after rehydration therapy.
