Untitled[edit]

A new article pygmy sand bat has been created, which while not wikified etc.. yet looks like a duplicate of this article but has more content. External link - [little brown bat] - seems to show that Little brown bat is the correctly named starting point Peripitus 00:14, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Brown bats can be extremely aggressive and will make no hesitations to bite, and bite hard. Many times these bats are attributed to spreading rabies due to their aggressive nature to bite as a first line defense.(AJK)

Original Research[edit]

I have added this flag in response to an invalid citation by Frederick_athey for content added by the same. I am not sure what the intent of the malformed citation is, but it appears to be someone citing himself. This is a violation of WP:NOR. I will leave the content in the article for now because I have no reason to doubt it, but I will remove the invalid reference. Please add a reference to a published work containing this information.

I see the OR tag was removed claiming "no reason given." Perhaps I didn't thoroughly explain, but if you look at the 00:15, 6 February 2013 version http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Little_brown_bat&oldid=536819471 It should be obvious that the user attempted to cite himself for the content.

OK, I let this sit a while but it's time to clean it up. I will remove the uncited statements.Autumn Wind (talk) 15:10, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Change of heart. I have no reason to doubt that last statement in the section, and certainly not every statement on wikipedia has to be proven beyond a doubt. therefore I will just leve the citation needed tag. I think thats a fair compromise.Autumn Wind (talk) 15:24, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Endangered[edit]

Little Brown Bats are, in fact, on the U.S endangered species list. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.70.143.42 (talk) 03:51, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

IUCN Red List[edit]

The infobox edits by User:108.41.6.238, changing the status of Myotis lucifugus from "LC" (Least Concern) to "EN" (Endangered) is not supported by the current IUCN Red List category, updated most recently in 2008. Nor does "Brown Bat" or "Little Brown Bat" appear on the current Endangered Species List of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. Accordingly, I reverted these edits. -- Cuppysfriend (talk) 23:06, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Smithsonian article[edit]

Point taken above, but this article from the reputable Smithsonian mag suggests that there is serious concern for this species. Can someone of a more biological persuasion sort this out? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Schnitzi (talkcontribs) 11:39, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
