The big-eared bat does, indeed, have large ears – as much as 1” long.

This bat is found throughout the western US, with a few isolated populations in the eastern US. Both of the eastern subspecies are considered endangered. Human activity has caused females to abandon nursing colonies, leaving the young to starve.
