Dogs to help survey for Bonneted Bats

This is interesting….

Tracking bats is going to the dogs. Literally.

If all goes according to plan this winter, a team of trained dogs and a handler from Auburn University will come to down south to help us find Florida bonneted bats, an elusive candidate species whose natural history is not fully understood.

I wonder if they scan distinguish the guano of different species though?
