Flying Foxes in Cairns, North Queensland, Australia

See flying foxes with an over 2 foot wingspan in
Cairns, North Queensland, Australia!

 These very large fruit-eating bats Pteropus sp. roost downtown in Cairns in giant ficus and eucalyptus trees. 

 You can hear them chattering and fanning themselves to keep cool from several blocks away.

Here's more information on the bats!
