Flying-foxes live near the coast in the Daintree NP. They feed on fruits, flowers and nectar and are similar in size to a possum, not small like the microbats. On dusk they can be seen flying in large numbers across the skies to the trees that they feed on during the night. They travel to different destinations according to where there is abundant food. This one is a Spectacled Flying-fox.
