This is the Rafenesque’s big-eared bat at one of the cave entrances. Hope this helps: Raw-fin-nesk. If you think the Raffy’s common name is a mouth full then go ahead and Google their scientific name. I have a scientist buddy who spits them out without hesitation. Oh, to be a bat scientist.
I was ecstatic that I got to see him/her because I hadn’t seen one on person.
I have several awful pictures of me grinning widely just below him. Typically, me and self-portraits don’t have good results.
Even though four tours have been passing by this bat daily, he can’t be bothered.
Here’s a close up of the little beauty. He has one ear unfurled so he can listen to the world turn. You can see why they are called the big-eared bat.
