Flying-Fox Colony

Artist: Tim Pearson
Tallowwood Ridge, NSW, Australia
Recommended charity: Queensland Conservation
Notes:

Flying-foxes are large bats, nectivorous and frugivorous, and roost during the day in the tops of trees in numbers up to the tens of thousands. They spend around half their day asleep, and half grooming and socialising. Vocal communication is a key component of their socialising.
