What the....?

I took this photo of a bat on the ceiling of my new house. But for the life of me can't figure out if it is one bat, two bats, where is the head, what kind of bat. It looks like a bat wing with a black bears head sitting on it. The nose to the left, then the tan snout, and the eye is closed.

Any ideas?

It does look like a bear's head! I have a large monitor and enlarged the photo even more.

I wonder if it is a baby and mother? I found this on the internet:

WHAT ABOUT BABY BATS? Some bats live together in big colonies during the winter. Several hundred males and females may huddle for warmth, hanging upside-down in a cave or old building. In the summer, only females (girls) live together in a maternity (mother) colony of up to several hundred bats. Each mother bat has one or two babies in early summer. The babies cling to their mother’s furry belly and drink milk. The mothers and babies all huddle together for warmth. If you ever find a “maternity” or “mother” colony, leave immediately. If you scare the mothers, they will probably drop their babies and accidentally kill them. Baby bats can fly after only one month, and are full grown after two or three months. They live from ten to thirty years.
