Fruit Bats,
Digital Photography, mp4
Flying foxes (Pteropus) are flying to their nightly roosts through coastal Gymea Lillies. They are mega-bats and are commonly known as fruit bats living on a diet of nectar, pollen and fruit. They do not use sonar but their eyes and ears to navigate. They hang upside down to sleep during the day in camps of hundreds to thousands of individuals. They appear frequently in indigenous air, folklore and weaponry. Their fur and teeth were read as currency. Animation and soundscape created by internationally award-winning visual effects and post-production studio Heckler.
