Hoary bats are large, dark-colored and heavily furred bats. The tip of their hair is white, giving the bat a frosted, or hoary appearance.
This is the most wide spread of all of the bats found in the United States; it occurs from Hawaii to Iceland to Bermuda and the Dominican Republic.
I found this little guy sleeping in a tree. What a surprise to find him as they are rarely seen.
In the evening, the hoary bat emerges late, and they may wake and fly during late after noon on warm winter days. Almost nothing is known of the feeding habits of this species, however it is suggested that hoary bats feed on moths, beetles, dragonflies, and mosquitoes. This probably explains why he was in my neighborhood since I live close to the lake (Lake Havasu).

Here's my little "Lovey Dog" "Scooter" he's not feeling to well. He has injured is back and for an 11 1/2 year old that's not good. He's on pain and muscle medication and it does seem to be helping him. He goes to the Vet today so we'll find out how she thinks he's doing. Say a prayer for him, because he is so special...
