Bats of Wisconsin PosterBats of Wisconsin

Wisconsin is home to both cave bats that are permanent residents, and tree bats that migrate south for the winter. All 9 species are valuable pest-control weapons—one bat can eat 1,200 insects a night! Cave bats are all endangered, mainly due to the fungal disease White-nose Syndrome.

Wisconsin Freshwater Mussels and Clams

Wisconsin Freshwater Mussels and Clams Poster

Biologically, mussels and clams have their differences, but colloquially we call them all “clams.” We illustrate our 58 Wisconsin species, including exotics, at adult life size. Each species reveals its unique beauty, shape, and identifying features. Sadly, illustrations may be all you ever see of some of these vital environmental-health indicators. At least two species are considered extinct, and many more are threatened or endangered. This 44 inch x 10 foot poster is printed with archival inks on exhibition quality canvas.

What’s the difference between minnows and shiners? Chubs and chubsuckers? We address these questions and provide other interesting tidbits about Wisconsin’s littlest fishes.
