Cuban evening bat

Nycticeius cubanus


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.


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.
