Mexican free-tailed bats (Tadarida brasiliensis) are excellent fliers, capable of reaching average speeds of over 60 miles per hour, and a maximum recorded speed of just under 100 miles per hour. In North America, Mexican free-tailed bats are migratory, seasonally moving from central and southern United States to Mexico. Female Mexican free-tailed bats form maternity colonies during the summers like the one at Bracken Cave Preserve, while males roost separately in smaller bachelor colonies.
