The Long-Eared Bat (Original)

The Long-Eared Bat (Original) by Kenneth Lilly at The Illustration Art Gallery

Ref: LillyBats (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: Kenneth Lilly (biography)
Medium: Watercolour on Board
Size: 9" x 10" (220mm x 265mm)
Date: 1967

This is the original Watercolour painting by Kenneth Lilly.

The brown long-eared bat or common long-eared bat (Plecotus auritus) is a fairly large European bat. It has distinctive ears, long and with a distinctive fold. It is extremely similar to the much rarer grey long-eared bat which was only validated as a distinct species in the 1960s.

An adult brown long-eared bat has a body length of 4.5-4.8 cm, a tail of 4.1-4.6 cm, and a wing length of 4-4.2 cm. The ears are 3.3-3.9 cm in length, and readily distinguish this from most other bat species.

They are relatively slow flyers compared to other bat species.

Original cover art from Treasure no. 247 (7 October 1967).
