Types of bats that can be found in Corsica

 

Some twenty-two species live in Corsica, believe it or not. And, this island shelters a third of the national numbers, which is the most important within the Western Mediterranean basin with this particular characteristic.
Among the species present here, is the smallest in Europe: the Common Pipistrelle, but, also the largest and rarest: the Great Noctule !
Corsica is also the only region around France where one can meet the Maghreb Murin, a cave dwelling species.

To be noted: the reproduction rate is very low; with just one baby per year and per female. If you are interested in bats, here is a site that could very well interest you: http://chauvesouriscorse.fr/
