Flying Fox Gallery

There are more than 160 species of flying fox found widely through South East Asia and North East Australia where they inhabit tropical rainforests including mangrove forests. Flying foxes do not use echolocation for navigation like most other bat species but rely on sight and smell. Females usually give birth to a single offspring each year. The young bat suckles from its mother for three to four months before it begins to fend for itself. Many species of flying foxes are endangered. Photographs by Pierre Fidenci
