A medium sized bat, tails extend more than one third beyond the tail membranes. Their fur is reddish to dark brown or gray in color. They have broad, black, forward pointing ears, and wrinkled lips. Most of these bats make an annual migration to south to Central America and Mexico during the winter.
Mexican free-tails prefer to roost in caves, but will also choose attics, under bridges, or in abandoned buildings.
My dad actually took these pictures because I didn't have my camera at the time...
