It's Tadarida brasiliensis!

Welcome to our wonderful website that we created to inform you about the amazing Tadarida brasiliensis. For those of you who don't know this organism, it is also known as the Brazilian/Mexican Free-Tailed Bat. For our organismal biology course we were told to pick an animal that primarily lives in caves and we decided to research a bat species. This species in particular is distinguished by its brown fur and large ears, medium size, short snout, and wrinkled upper lips. They are also recognized by their "free-tail" that pushes out farther than their legs.
