California Myotis

California Myotis

Myotis californicus This tiny bat has moderately-sized ears that would extend beyond the nose if pushed forward. It has a keel on the calcar, the ankle spur that supports the airfoil membrane (see below). A single young is born in the summer months, (for example, a pregnant female was found on Salt Spring in early June). The California Myotis is active in winter during periods of good weather.
