Little Red Flying-Fox

This megachiropteran bat species lives in Northern and Eastern Australia. They like to hang around in groups close together on an individual branch to the degree that it is in danger of breaking off from the weight. They gather sometimes in great flocks of up to 20,000 individuals so that they are not threatened today. In the dark, the membranes of these bats appear shimmeringly silver.
