Our bats:

Lily

Vespertilio bats are very scary and in some cases hiss at you threateningly. This girl is no exception. She injured her wing in a collision with a magpie in the winter of 2021, so she had to amputate the wing. But she is cheerful and mobile, and can live up to 10 years in captivity.

White

This red-haired boy of Noctule bat has a white spot (partial albinism) on his back. He was born in captivity in Kyiv in the summer of 2020, but had developmental problems and did not fly. He is still training flights and we hope to fly free in the near future, when he will be confidently flying on the bet collider.

Grey

This Serotine bat and has a unique gray color of fur on the back and abdomen (usually black). This adult boy came to us for rehabilitation in 2020. He likes to sit next to other bats, in the house, apparently feels that he is special. He is not flying yet because he has a sick hind paw.

Tadarida

This exotic bat – a Tadarida teniotis (from the Bulldog family) – is special in our Center. In general, he lives in the Mediterranean and the Caucasus. He got to Kharkiv by accident and flew into the apartment, where we rescued him in the summer of 2020 (more here). He broke his wing and we could not set him free, and he will not survive in our latitudes. In general, he feels good, eats a variety of insects and “communicates” with bats of our fauna, which are in the Center.

Karma

This Noctule (girl) was found on the ground in Kharkiv, she was attacked by forty. When she fought back, she screamed and people rescued her and handed her over to us. She currently has a fracture of the 4th finger of her left wing and a torn membrane, but this is being treated and she will still have a chance to fly. So far we have treatment and rehabilitation.

* Adoption means his keeping in the Center at the expense of donations of the benefactor
