    Small bat under our veranda. Slightly larger than a mouse in size.

    1. Lawrie Conole  Very fuzzy picture which makes ID a little tricky. It's clearly a long-eared bat (Nyctophilus sp.), and although it's hard to tell from the photo it looks not to have a y-shaped noseleaf. That with it's warm brown colouration suggests that in your area it's most likely Gould's Long-eared Bat (Nyctophilus gouldi).

      • Andrew Brown  Thanks Lawrie. Yes, low light didn't help with the photo.

        • Lawrie Conole  I'd go with Nyctophilus sp. as I don't think it's definitively verifiable from the photo.
