The Big Brown Bat is a species of bat that is found throughout North America. They are the largest bat in the United States, and they get their name from their brown fur. They typically have a wingspan of about 12 inches, and they weigh between 2 and 4 ounces.

Big Brown Bats live in a variety of habitats, including forests, caves, and even urban areas. They prefer to roost in dark, secluded areas, such as hollow trees or buildings. They are also proficient swimmers and can be found near water sources like streams and lakes.

Big Brown Bats are mostly nocturnal, but they will sometimes come out during the day to feed. They eat a variety of insects, including mosquitoes, moths, and beetles. They can consume up to half their body weight in insects each night.

Big Brown Bats are very social animals and usually live in colonies of several hundred bats. They communicate with each other using a variety of vocalizations, including chirps, clicks, and screeches.
