An endangered Lesser long-nosed bat (Leptonycteris yerbabuenae) pollinating a Cardon Cactus (Pachycereus pringlei) in Mexico. These bats also serve as this plant's most important long-distance seed dispersers. The cardon is the world's largest cactus, growing up to 50 feet tall. It is one of many cactus species that rely on bats.
