The lesser horseshoe bat is one of the world’s smallest bats. They often kept in close proximity to human dwellings (attic, bell towers, basements) and can often be seen as hanging from the ceiling. They get its name from its distinctive horseshoe-shaped nose. They use the nose leaf in echolocation. Lesser horseshoe bats are able to wiggle their ears, helping them to locate the precise position of prey. A lot of interesting facts encouraged me that I have prepared an extensive photo reportage for National Geographic Slovenia magazine.
