Forearm: longest bone in arm, with hook-like thumb at one end.
Keel: flap of skin on edge of tail which is a distinctive projection of the calcar. See photo of keel and calcar at: University of Michigan Museum of Zoology
Total length: measured from nose tip to tail tip.
Premolars: are the teeth with points, just behind the canine. Molars are further back and are relatively flat.
Tragus: a projection surrounded by external ear flap, often stiffened with cartilage. Ours is a little blunt one, in front, center of ear, forming front of entrance to ear canal.
