Heres a couple of other interesting images:
While many people think this is a “baby bat” it is NOT. This is an adult. Everyone always asks me if that is me holding that bat like that. The truth is it isn’t, but to be honest there have been a few times where I didn’t actually say one way or the other. I just said, it sure looks like my thumb!
Log cabins can be tough work as the walls are always irregular and special materials must be used because of a large amount of movement in a log cabin. Wood expands and contracts, and since bats love crevices a log cabin can be a challenge unlike any other. The only thing worse than a log cabin is one with a metal roof as well.
I took this picture in Metaire off of Zinnia Avenue on a hot day. I suspect this bat was just cooling off even though free-tails like it to be about 104 degrees to raise their young.
