Lesser Long-eared Bat
Roosts in small holes and crevices in tree hollows, under bark and in buildings. Twins are generally born in late spring-early summer. Will forage amongst low foliage, on the ground or in flight.
The fur is distinctly bicoloured, darker at the base. There is a small distinctive Y-shaped nose-leaf present which assists with echolocation.
Occurs over most of Australia except for Cape York and the east coast of Queensland.
