Gray bats arousing from hibernation due to human disturbance (in this instance scientists are conducting a population estimate). Gray bats may lose as much as 0.48 g of weight in the first hour of disturbance and these crucial fat reserves can not be replenished until spring emergence.

This reservoir, found in northeastern Alabama, contains the Sauta (formerly Blowing Wind) and Hambrick caves which can accommodate over 200,000 gray bats combined.
