Hi there

We are currently in Pouso Alegre and found these bats in the wooden house behind the lodge.

We are a bit struggeling with the ID and would be grateful for help.

For the first two bats we think about the Silky short-tailed bat and the Seba’s short-tailed bat.

Thanks a lot!

Sophie and Manuel

    The larger (10-12 cm) one with the big, rounded ears is Fringe-lipped Bat (Trachops cirrhosus). The others are Carollia sp, I don’t know which without a size comparison.
