A small bat with pale tan to dark brown fur. This bat eats gnats, crane flies, beetles, moths and mayflies. Little Brown bats can sometimes eat more than their body weight in insects each night. They are common in Colorado and live in roosts.
The pallid bat is known for its unique habit of feeding almost entirely from the ground. With its huge ears, it can detect insects simply by listening for footsteps, and it can respond accurately to a split-second sound from up to 16 feet away.
