In the swamps of East Texas, lives a colony of rare bats called Rafinesque's Big-Eared Bats. Their numbers have dwindled with the overall disappearance of the old hardwood bottomland forests causing biologists to worry.
In this week's Your Outdoors, Paul Brown shows us one colony that has made themselves at home in Liberty County. See the video above.
