Brown Bat

Eptesicos sp.


This specimen was caught in an edge of a river, on an island in the middle of the river that across my city, a region of transiiton between the Cerrado and Atlantic Forest.


Some friends of mine, and I, are doing some researches of bats, then we decide teach a course about Neotropical Chiropteran in my city. The "Eptesicos sp. " have a insectivorous diet. It uses an adapted tail (that works how a little "fishnet") [second photo in detail] to capture insects in the flying.
