Description:This image depicts a lateral view of a free-tailed bat’s head region. Though its specie is unidentified, it was labeled as a member of the genus Tadarida.
Free-tailed bats are insectivores, catching their prey in flight, and are found on every continent except Antarctica. They derive their name from the fact that their tail extends further than the membrane, which connects the base of the tail to its hind legs, also known as the uropatagium.
