…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night
A creature that gives lots of people the creeps I guess… not me though, I find them very interesting.
In my hometown zoo we have quit an extensive number of them… 24 to be exact, all males because there are lots of them and they want to prevent growth of that numbers for a while.
Generallt speaking one could say that there are 2 kinds…
one kind is mostly a herbivor and eats meat etc and is quit small in size
the other one is much larger in size and does not eat any meat at all, just fruit and vegetables.
The little ones… we in The Netherlands call “vleermuizen” (English = Bat)
The large ones… we in The Netherlands call “vleerhonden” (English = Flying Fox)
As we don’t have the little ones and as they are related to the big ones, I thought it would not be a big problem that the English name for this creature does not start with a B… It looks exactly like a Bat, only much larger.
I’ve tried to catch them in flight, that prooved to be very difficult but his photo is acceptable to show you, isn’t it?
