Caption: Eastern red bat (Lasiurus borealis). This bat is found throughout North America to the east of the Rocky Mountains, and in Central and South America. It measures about 5 centimetres long in the body and weighs between 7 and 13 grammes. When roosting upside down in a tree it resembles a dead leaf or a pine cone. The eastern red bat often lives solitarily, unlike most bat species, which live in large colonies. It is also unusual in having multiple offspring. Females may give birth to twins or even triplets. L. borealis is insectivorous, feeding mostly on moths. Photographed in Summer County, Kansas, USA.
