Whiskered Bat
The whiskered bat Myotis mystacinus is not much bigger than a pipistrelle but they have a very different character. Whilst the pipistrelles are usually calm when handled, the whiskered bat rarely stops chattering. The 'open mouth' posture is not agressive but for emitting ultrasonic calls, with which it constructs a 'sound picture' of its surroundings.

The open mouth turns the bats head into a very efficient loudspeaker.
When compared to the pipistrelle, a whiskered bat has a longer, less rounded ear, with a much more pointed tragus. It is fairly difficult, without close scrutiny, to differentiate from a Brandt's bat.
