A hibernating colony of Myolis lucijugus was studied for a five-year period. The members of the colony exhibited movement within the cave system during the winter months. The expectancy of finding a bat present in the cave was approximately two-and-a-half years after banding. The average distance of bats recaptured was 25±5 miles from the banding site.
