True blood..

  One interesting phenomena in the Seychelles fauna is the Fruitbat or Flying Fox. Pteropus Seychellensis.

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

Like mother, like daughter..

“It´s my daughter”

 In the island of La Digue in the Seychelles, a woman dressed in the local tourist-company uniform started to chat with me at the guesthouse where I stayed.

She was a likeable person and I recalled having taken a picture of a younger woman (see above) with the same uniform as the one she had, which I told her.. Let me see it she said.  I showed it to her and her instant comment was  “it´s my daughter”.

Whale shark habitat!

 

 

 The season for watching Whale Sharks in the Seychelles is from August to the end of October with some variations..  If you go another period of the year there are other interesting stuff to see as well. I promise!

Big sister in Indian ocean!

 If dream beaches is your kind of fun go to the Seychelles!  This is “big sister island” It´s not very big actually, you can walk from one side to the other in 5 minutes.

There is a Little sister as well close by!

Towards Victoria!
