Description

"Long-legged myotis typically occupy mountainous or relatively rugged areas. They often live in coniferous forest, although they are sometimes found in oak or streamside woodlands, and even deserts. They feed mostly on moths, but are opportunistic, eating whatever soft-bodied insects are most abundant. When several long-legged myotis are feeding in the same area, and two bats seem to be on a collision course, they alter their echolocation calls, adding a lower-frequency ""honk."""
