Brief Summary

Read full entry
The whiskered bat is named after the whiskers on its nose. It hunts above paths and along woodlands the entire night, and sometimes even during the day. Whiskered bats are fairly rare in the Netherlands during the summer, but many are found hibernating here in the winter. Since their winter and summer homes are most likely close to each other, researchers assume that there are more whiskered bats breeding in the Netherlands than has been found up till now.
