The Reremouse's picture


Any idea how big? Its hard to figure out the scale - Can only say its not one of the horseshoe bats and not one of the long eared bats or a greater mouse eared bat, or a barbastelle. That still leaves 3 pips, 3 noctules and 5 myotis species to choose from (although I think you can discount daubentons from the size of the feet). It doesn't APPEAR to have a post calcareal lobe, which is a feature of pipistrelles.

Any photos of the face (ears preferably)?
