Air temperature and Wall Temperature in Hibernation Sites

Last year we got given a digital thermometer for our search for the fungus that caused White Nose syndrome.

We were allowed to keep it.

So inevitably it got played with in the hibernation season. The air temperature is in blue and the wall temperature is in red.  It is fairly clear that measuring wall temperature is a better indication of the hibernating bat’s microclimate Not to metion more fun.
