Caption: Indian flying fox (Pteropus giganteus) hanging in a tree. The Indian flying fox is a large fruit bat with a wingspan of over one metre. This is probably a male, which tend to be paler in colour than females. P. giganteus feeds on fruit in tropical forests throughout India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Myanmar. Like all flying foxes, this species roosts in trees, gathering in "camps" of many hundreds or thousands of individuals. Groups are nomadic, using smell and sight to detect new sources of food.
