It's no secret why this species is called the brown long-eared bat. Those incredible ears are nearly as long as this bat’s entire body! Surprisingly they can hold their massive ears upright in flight, but when resting they curl them back and tuck them underneath their wings. Like most bat species the brown long-eared bat is threatened by habitat loss and the use of insecticides, which reduces the amount of prey available for bats to feed on. The best way for you to help bats? Keep your garden insecticide free! Photo taken @moscow_zoo_official.
