Long-eared myotis

The long-eared myotis is a species of vesper bat in the suborder Microchiroptera. It can be found in western Canada, the western United States, Baja California in Mexico; the long-eared myotis is a pale straw-colored bat with black ears and wing membranes. The face is black in color as well. Specimens found along the coast are darker in coloration and are considered to be part of the subspecies Myotis evotis pacificus; the range of the long-eared myotis includes several different environments. It has been known to occur in semiarid shrublands, shortgrass prairie, subalpine forests, with habitats ranging from sea level to 2,830 meters, they roost in a variety of places, including tree cavities, rock crevices and abandoned buildings. They seem to prefer rock crevices, while individuals in the northern part of the range favor ponderosa and lodgepole pines. Reproducing females roost in small, 2-centimeter wide crevices. Most crevices used by the long-eared myotis are vertically oriented and contain an overhang over the opening.

The bats switch roosts, an event that involves the colony as a whole. Roosting sites contain a lot of rock cover, are far from bodies of water, have little cover from trees and grass; the long-eared myotis is an insectivore, whose robust molars and placed articular process allow it be good at hunting beetles. A high articular process allows for more crushing force; this is advantageous. The long-eared myotis feeds by both substrate-gleaning of the ground or of trees, by aerial-hawking. Prey is always detected through echolocation; when gleaning, the bats use echolocation less and at a lower frequency due to the energetic cost of echolocation calls.

Panay cloudrunner

The Panay cloudrunner is the second-largest cloud rat, a squirrel-like rodent, found on the island of Panay in the Philippines. It is the most endangered rodent species in Panay, one of the only few known cloud rat species in the world; the Panay cloudrunner was discovered by western science in 1987, was described as a new species in 1996 by Robert Kennedy of the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History and Pedro Gonzales of the National Museum of the Philippines. The late date of discovery was because the lack of forest cover on Panay which led to the island being ignored by biologists; the Panay cloudrunner is a little over 600 mm long, with grizzled greyish-brown fur and a long, bushy tail making up more than half of the body length. It weighs around 1 kilogram; the cloudrunner is nocturnal and arboreal, nests during the day in the hollow of a large tree. Its diet includes bananas, corn and assorted leaves. Continued deforestation on the island of Panay is the major threat to this species, the animal is now confined to remnant forest in a mountain range on the western end of the island
