Cuban evening bat

Nycticeius cubanus

Description:

The Cuban evening bat (Nycticeius cubanus) is a species of bat in the vesper bat family, Vespertilionidae, that is endemic to western Cuba. It is a small bat, even smaller than cogener Nycticeius humeralis. It is insectivorous, but otherwise little is known about its behavior and diet.

Notes:

At 7pm, everyday, thousands of bats are leaving this cave. I was there, alone with my guide. Here are a few snapshots. Specie to be confirmed.
