White-nose syndrome

A dead Little Brown Myotis (Myotis lucifigus) lies in the snow outside of Vermont's Aeolus Cave.  Bats infected with white-nose syndrome often leave their hibernaulum where they quickly perish in cold temperatures. Scavengers and predators such as the Common Raven take advantage of the easy meals. Aelous Cave, Bennington County, Vermont. March.
