Crazy fox you got there Kev

Well, there ARE bats called flying foxes, so you're not too far off the mark! :D

I guess Pondrader intentionally commented as such..."pun intended"...:-D

Just think how many flying foxes contract some form of terminal condition via contact with humans!

We are sneaky. We just take their habitat then chase them away when they find new habitats too close to us.

Grey-headed flying fox is what we have. There is a colony within walking distance of my home, numbers reach over 2000 sometimes, last count a couple of weeks ago was about 1000.
This first pic will benefit from 5D4 high ISO performance, have to have another go.

This pic would benefit from some blue in the sky rather than full white due to overcast, but I think I'd lose some of the detail.

We walked through a park in Sydney (can't remember which one) and there were hundreds of large bats hanging from the trees. Not sure if these are the same.

I forgot I had this. TC's work very well on zooms and Canon states that the 100-400 II TC compatible but they are tuned for long primes.

I've helped capture bats for food... it was interesting. Put up netting on the mouth of the cave.... slide it without disturbing the net... start disturbing the bats... capture bats... take them home and let them be prepared for dinner.

Actually, quite tasty, I must admit

The Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney CBD. Same Flying foxs. The colony was "moved on" about 2 years ago.

Special treat today. Local wetlands has been drained in preparation for excavators to remove sediment from the ponds. So what do the eels do without water? Dig themselves into the mud. Unfortunately for them the Red-bellied black snakes also dig themselves into the mud and feast on the eels.

The bats in Dave's pictures (fruit bats or flying foxes) were also once food for Aboriginal people in Australia—they are quite large for bats—but they don't live in caves. They spend their days in huge colonies in rainforest patches (or sometimes lush gardens) and set off at sundown in their tens of thousands to forage for fruit. It's an amazing sight seeing them head off.
