Bats are the second largest order of mammals (after the rodents), about 20% of all classified mammal species worldwide, 1,240 bat species divided into two suborders: the less specialized and largely fruit-eating megabats, or flying foxes, and the highly specialized and echolocating microbats.
The Malaysian Flying Fox (Pteropus vampyrus), is a southeast Asian species of megabat in the family Pteropodidae. Like the other members of the genus Pteropus, or the Old World fruit bats, it feeds exclusively on fruits, nectar and flowers. It is noted for being one of the largest bats and as with all other Old World fruit bats, lacks the ability to echolocate. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large_flying_fox #Bat #Malaysian_Flying_Fox
Pteropus Bats of the genus Pteropus, belonging to the Megachiroptera sub-order, are the largest bats in the world. They are commonly known as the Fruit Bats or Flying Foxes among other numerous colloquial names. They live in the tropics and subtropics of Asia (including the Indian subcontinent), Australia, Indonesia, islands off East Africa (but not the mainland Africa), and a number of remote oceanic islands in both the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
