ID please: Bats from near Alta Floresta, Brazil

Above is a fairly large bat with a horseshoe-bat-like noseleaf that was roosting with others of its species under the roof of an abandoned house.

Below is a dead bat hanging from a utility wire; my guess is that it is Tadarida brasiliensis

    The upper bat is Carollia perspicillata.
    the lower one is a freetailed bat, yes Tadarida brasiliensis is a good guess.

    Thank you very much! Is it perspicillata because it was biggish and has few hairs on the forearm?
