This is "Tough Guy", a big brown bat, Eptesicus fuscus. I forget what number he is, I lose track of these things. But anyway, he's a male, which is rare. For those that don't know, I do bat rescue in the dormitories here. He's really quite nice, but likes to put on his tough guy display now and then, hence his name.
I'll let him go once it's dark out. Ugh, I wish I had a place with better lighting for photography though. Also, should I crop this photo?
If you'd like to use this photo for anything, at least let me know about it, please.
