Habitat: Areas of rocky outcrops, caves, crevices, and mines.

Habits: This species may migrate, but there are few data. Narrow crevices in caves are used for hibernating. The night roosts of this bat in Oklahoma are caves, although elsewhere crevices in cliffs, rock overhangs, mines, and buildings also are used. Colonies may number from a few individuals to about 100. Night roosts are used for consuming large prey (usually grasshoppers and crickets, flying and flightless insects), as well as resting between feeding bouts. They are, in part, terrestrial foragers. Mating occurs from mid-autumn until spring; females bear one to two young in May and June.
