Molossops temminckii

Molossops temminckii

Dwarf Dog-faced Bat

They are one of the species that live in the roof of our research station. They are the most common bat in the garden along with Eumops patagonicus.

They are very small, with a head/body length of about 5cm.  They are part of the Molossidae family which all have free tails extending from their membrane.  The Brazilian Free-tailed bat is part of this family.

They generally weigh between 7-10 grams and the fur is bicolour with a white base and brown tips. They are insectivorous and fairly common in this area of Argentina.
