Great series; glad it was featured in the blog as I had missed it.
Hi AfriBats, for the meantime I will take your ID suggestion until somebody could zero in on its exact species. I know its a megabat but could not find an exact match. Thanks for the ID suggestion
Exactly, Jolly, Rousettus obliviosus is endemic to the Comoros. This is most likely either Cynopterus sp. or an Asian Rousettus
Hi Megan Gilbert, I don't think this is a comoro rousette fruit bat which is endemic to Comoros Isaland. This photo was taken in Zamboanga City Philippines. Thanks for the suggestion though.
Beautiful series Jolly!
Thanks...I should have known that!
Thanks Ceherzog. The fruit is ripe mango.
Do you know what the fruit is? Nice capture!
Thanks Mary and Mona
Oh, wow! Wonderful!
Nice series. I think they are a fruitbat.
Thanks Alice. Yes, it was taken in the evening at around 10PM. I have to use a search light as the forest is in pitch darkness.
Lovely series! What time was it taken? Evening?
