THE MEXICAN LONG NOSED BAT – Leptonycteris Nivalis

Mexican long-nosed bats are a somewhat large bat species that are listed as endangered in the United States. Their fur can be dark gray to a soot-like brown. They have longer muzzles than many bat species and can be distinguished by a protruding leaf at the end of their noses. The Mexican long-nosed bat has a short tail and large ears. They spend their summers in areas of Texas. There they feed on the nectar and fruits of specific types of cactuses. The offspring are born in Mexico during the early spring months before moving up to Northern Mexico and Texas after June. Interestingly, the males seem to stay in place while the mothers and their young go ahead with their northbound migration.

Many thanks to Merlin Tuttle for this photo of a Mexican Long-Nosed bat. On his site, there are over 2,000 bat photos, including 19 families of bats, 125 genera, and 298 species from 38 countries.

Mexican long-nosed bats now list as an endangered species in the United States. Habitat loss and the harvesting of many of their typical food sources threaten their population. During the daytime, the bats depend on mines, tunnels, and abandoned buildings to protect them from the heat.
