THE SEMINOLE BAT – Lasiurus Seminolus
Seminole bats are a mid-sized bat species known for its dark red fur. It is commonly mistaken for other bat species, such as the eastern red bat. But white patches of hair separate the red around the shoulder and wrist area. They tend to roost in areas where Spanish moss is prevalent, shading them from the sun. In the evening, Seminole bats go foraging for insects such as beetles, crickets, and flies. Because of this, these bats are crucial for keeping insect populations in check so as not to overrun human-dense areas.
Many thanks to Merlin Tuttle for this Seminole Bat photo. On his site, there are over 2,000 bat photos, including 19 families of bats, 125 genera, and 298 species from 38 countries.
Seminole bats live in the Deep South, where temperatures are more tropical throughout the year. Because of the warmth, these bats don’t require a typical hibernation period and are active all year round. They may, however, stay inside their roosts if temperatures drop abnormally low for any amount of time. Their mating season is during the fall months, while the sperm stores in the female for the duration of the winter, and offspring are born around early June. The offspring number from one to four and mature quickly compared to most other bat species. Young Seminole bats may even achieve flight after only three weeks.
Seminole bats, like many other bat species, are important for maintaining a healthy balance of insects. Therefore, you must treat bats of all kinds with care when being removed.
