Description

This is a Yuma myotis bat call that was detected at the Los Angeles Zoo using a bat echolocation monitoring device. Yuma myotis have mouse-shaped ears. Myotis is latin for "mouse-eared." Yuma myotis are highly associated with areas near water. Like, Mexican free-tailed bats, Yuma myotis bats are one of the most common and urban-adapted bat species in Los Angeles and other areas around the southwest. In fact, they roost in the Tree Top Terrace at the L.A. Zoo. The L.A. Zoo occasionally offers twilight tours to the public so they can view this species emerge from the roost to hunt for insects. The long term monitoring device is in place to collect long term data on Los Angeles bats and to educate zoo visitors and the public about local bats and the important roles they play in ecosystems. The project is a collaboration between the Los Angeles Zoo and the United States Forest Service. All species are identified by using Sonobat bat call analysis software.

Description

This is a hoary bat call that was detected at the Los Angeles Zoo using a bat echolocation monitoring device. Hoary bats are a migratory bat species that travel from Canada to south America every fall. They only roost in foliage so they are sensitive to urbanization and are great indicators of ecosystem health. The long term monitoring device is in place to collect long term data on Los Angeles bats and to educate zoo visitors and the public about local bats and the important roles they play in ecosystems. The project is a collaboration between the Los Angeles Zoo and the United States Forest Service. All species are identified by using Sonobat bat call analysis software.

he jumped off a wall right next to dinner table on patio when we had guests. we were on third bottle of wine, but I grabbed camera anyway, took flash shot, and took him to safe area to release, thinking it was just a young western toad. (we live next to Griffith Park). Now that I downloaded photos off camera, I have no clue.
