Description: A Fruit Bat looking for ripe fruit. Fruit Bats or Flying Foxes feed almost exclusively on fruit, nectar and flowers. Frugivorous bats such as these play a vital role in seed and pollen dispersal. Unlike their smaller counterparts, they do not have echolocation, instead they rely on their heightened sense of sight and smell.
