Nyctinomops femorosaccus

No photograph available

Wingspan: 13 – 15”; Body length: 2 – 3”
Diet: moths and other insects

The “pocket” that gives this bat its name is formed by a flap of skin between the knee and base of the tail. As one might suppose, the rest of the tail is not attached to a membrane.

The pocketed free-tail bat is found in the arid lowlands of the Southwest, and primarily roosts in rock crevices.
