We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
We encountered this small bat in the north of Misiones. It is similar to the common Molossops temminckii but has a larger forearm and darker fur.
It roosts in roofs as well as in holes in trees.
It weighs around 12g and has a forearm length of 36-38mm. The fur has a pale base but is quite dark, particularly on the dorsal side.
It is insectivorous and has long narrow wings for its size.
