Rafinesque's Big-Eared Bat

Record #:
Of the four species of large eared bats that inhabit the temperate parts of North and Central America, only Rafinesque's bat occurs in North Carolina. Its most notable feature is its enormous, flexible ears. Although the bat's body measures less than four inches, it possesses a wingspan of eleven inches. Two colonies have been found in the state, one in Beaufort County and the other in Brunswick County.
