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
Brazilian Free-tailed Bat
The Brazilian Free-tailed bat is part of the family Molossidae and is the most common bat in the Americas.
Strangely it has not yet been discovered in our province of Corrientes but is found in almost all of the other provinces.
Its distinguishing feature is the wrinkled lips which is uses to make loud echolocation calls. The ears are large and almost joined over the top of the head, fur is greyish with a lighter venter and it has a longish free tail. They have long narrow wings which make them one of the fastest flying bats.
