[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
European Free-tailed Bat (Tadarida teniotis) is confined in the Mediterranean zone, including most of the islands where it is locally abundant. It is the largest European bat, with a body length of up to 87mm. Its wrinkled face gives it the alternative name of Mastiff Bat. Its long (up to 57mm) fleshy tail is free of membrane for over one third of its total length. This species is found in buildings and even in towns. In Greece, is listed among the threatened species.

une note explicative serait la bienvenue car on a du mal a voir ce que c'est , toutefois merci de nous présenter cet étranger pour moi?????

Poor little fellow looks put out . I like the way you caught his face . It's so sad to here that these bats are threatened , as they do so much good . Our farm is a much better place for having bats around . I've built a simple box with a place for the bats to hang inside . I have hung these from the eves of our buildings and the bats do use them . Our bat friends in Canada eat bugs , and they help keep our crops clear of bugs , too . TFS , Kevin .
