    Researchers are still very unsure about many of the aspects of white-nose syndrome in bats, including the cause. They believe it may be caused by a fungus of the genus Geomyces, which may grow on their skin and flight membranes, ultimately causing them to starve to death. The rate at which bats with white-nose syndrome are dying off is alarming, with more than a million killed in the first two years since it was discovered, causing scientists to investigate further into this deadly epidemic.
