The cause of white nose syndrome in bats is still largely a mystery. The disease gets its name from the white fungus found growing on noses, ears, wings, and heads of bats found dead from the syndrome. The fungus has been identified as a newly discovered species of fungus called Geomyces. However, they have yet to discover wether the fungus is the cause of the bat deaths or a symptom or secondary issue. The bats are dying because their fat reserves during hibernation are disappearing rapidly and as a result they do not survive the winter cold.
