Caption

Short-nosed fruit bat (Cynopterus brachyotis) roosting in a palm leaf. The short-nosed fruit bat is a small (30 to 45 centimetre wingspan) flying fox found throughout Sri Lanka and southeast Asia. It feeds at night on fruit and flowers in tropical forests. It uses eyesight and smell to locate its food, rather than the echolocation used by some bats. C. brachyotis chews palm leaves to construct tent-like roosting shelters.
