Grey Headed Flying Fox

Pteropus poliocephalus


Grey-headed flying foxes live a variety of habitats including rainforests, woodlands and swamps. During the day individuals reside in large roosts (colonies or 'camps') consisting of hundreds to tens of thousands of individuals


I will upload some more pictures soon of these guys. I have spotted there 'camp' and there is at least a few hundred of these guys sleeping in the trees. I will go back there with a better lens to get some better shots.

Thanks lyh19, Yes it looks very similar, however the Malayan fox is slightly bigger than these guys.
