Leucism in Two Tri-colored Bats (Perimyotis subflavus) in Texas
Authors: Melissa B. Meierhofer and Krysta D. Demere
Although aberrant coloration is known to occur in mammals, few records of the phenomenon exist in the literature for North American bats. Here we report on 2 leucistic Perimyotis suflavus (Tri-colored Bats) in Leon County, TX, that had a distinct white patch on their bodies. Our observation is the third documentation of leucism in Tri-colored Bats.
