Large Flying Fox

Name: 
(Kabog)
Pteropus vampyrus lanensis

Although the species name “vampyrus” may remind people of blood-drinking vampire bats, the flying fox eats plants. They are nocturnal and forages for fruit at night. They also eat flower, pollen, and nectar. Their tongue helps them reach nectar inside a flower while the teeth are adapted to cut through tough outer covering of fruits.

Conservation Status:
