Brown Long-eared

This is one of the most recognisable species due to its massive ears. When resting they will often curl their ears up or tuck them under their wings. The ears are used to listen for insects when gleaning, which is where they fly slowly and pick moths and spiders up off leaves and bark. Their echolocation call is very quiet and they are sometimes called whispering bats.
