Brief SummaryRead full entry
Description"Wagner's mastiff bat is considered endangered by the state of Florida, where habitat destruction and the use of pesticides may be contributing to its decline. It is a medium-sized bat with long, narrow wings. These bats leave their day roosts after dark and fly high, covering long distances quickly as they feed on insects. Eumops glaucinus is a freetailed bat. Like other bats in the family Molossidae, its tail extends beyond the tail membrane, or uropatagium (the skin that stretches between the back legs)."
