Fruit bat

An Indian flying fox also known as the Greater Indian fruit bat hanging out on a tree outside my window.. It is a species of flying fox found in the Indian subcontinent and is one of the largest bats in the world.


  1. ...bats are beneficial and misunderstood.

  2. What a wonderful sighting! How big is this beautiful animal? We often see bats in our neighborhood at dusk, flying about and controlling the bug population. But ours are small, with tiny bodies and a wing span of about 6 inches.

    1. The Indian flying fox is India's largest bat, and one of the largest bats in the world, weighing up to 1.6 kg (3.5 lb).Its body mass ranges from 0.6–1.6 kg (1.3–3.5 lb), and males are generally larger than females. The wingspan ranges from 1.2–1.5 m (3 ft 11 in–4 ft 11 in) and body length averages 15.5–22.0 cm (6.1–8.7 in) Wikipedia
