The lesser long-nosed bat is a nectar-feeding bat found in the caves and mines in southern Arizona, southwestern New Mexico, western Mexico, Baja California del Sur and into Central America. They eat only the fruit and nectar of night-blooming cacti including saguaro, cardon and organ pipe cacti as well as several agave species, the plant from which tequila is made.... they are important pollinators of the cacti. In 1988 these bats were listed as endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Fun Facts:
Lesser long-nosed bats are known to live for up to eight years in the wild. They are 2.5-3 inches long with a 14 inch wingspan. This bat can reach flight speeds up to 14 miles per hour. Bats are the only mammals that can fly. Bats are among the most threatened land mammals in North America, with over half the species either listed as threatened or endangered, or are candidates to become listed.
