Brown Long Eared Bat
The brown long eared bat, Plecotus auritus, is said to be the prettiest UK bat. Its ears are almost half the length of its body and are carefully folded away under its wings when it it asleep.

Because it feeds close to vegetation, its echolocation is very quiet as it gleans moths and other insects from the foliage. It's eyes are larger than most other bats and it has very good eyesight but its hearing is so acute that it can hear the fluttering of insect wings amongst the leaves. It is also able to echolocate through its nose.
