The giant Flying Fox (or Fruit bat) has a wing span of up to 5 feet (1.5m). Now it has got the doubtful reputation of being the cause of the current Ebola epidemic in West Africa. This particular portrait I took in the Seychelles where you see them fly everywhere also in plain daylight. (I flipped the pic upside down)
An important species for the ecosystems in the islands. The bat is big as a seagull, and you see them flying around all over also at day time. They are hunted for their meat by some of the locals.
About the catchy Halloween title…no worries, they only eat fruit and flower nectar. The pic is taken in Praslin island in February 2012 and turned upside down
