Two northern long-eared bats have been found on South Carolina’s Coastal Plain region at Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton (Beaufort County). Historically this federally listed species was known in South Carolina to exist only in the Upstate, so the discovery of these bats 200 miles south of their known range this past November came as a great surprise.
