Description

Este murciélago es endémico de México y fue localizado a los 3,745 msnm. En el Parque Nacional Izta-Popo, del corredor Iztaccihuatl, a la altura del albergue "el instituto" (del lado de Puebla).
Es una altura extraordinaria para cualquier especie de murciélago en México y el mundo.
¿Alguien sabe de algo similar en México?

Description from Wikipedia

The Mexican big-eared bat (Corynorhinus mexicanus) is a species of vesper bat. They are nocturnal and insectivorous. Their very large ears are located across their foreheads, and when captured, the bats are observed to curl their ears in a protective manner. The adults are usually brown colored, while the juveniles are usually a smokey brown color. They have small noses.
