FLYING FOXES FRUIT AND BLOSSOM BATS OF AUSTRALIA

Author(s): HALL LES

Nature

Flying Foxes is an illustrated guide dedicated to Australia's thriteen species of Megachiroptera. These 'mega' bats do not comply with standard bat stereotypes: while they are nocturnal, they live in forests rather than caves, they navigate by sight rather than echolocation, and their long snouts and large ears and eyes give them a canine like look - hence the description of 'flying foxes'. Perhaps because of their appearance, as well as their intelligence, flying foxes are regarded with much affection in Australia and are sometimes kept as family pets.
