Up close and personal with the Pallid Bat: Texas Wild Style

The pallid bat is local commonly along the escarpment and canyon lands of the Texas Panhandle and most of western Texas.  These bats are crevice roosting bats that use echolocation for means of feeding and navigation. “Pallid” refers to the blond coloration of this bat.  These large-eared bats are known for taking prey off the ground or out of the air. Prey for this species is composed largely of invertebrates and includes large and dangerous items such as scorpions and centipedes.
