Animals of the Sunderbans - Indian Flying Fox

So I begin the new year with another animal, meet the Indian Flying Fox.

This massive bat, with a wingspan of over 4 feet, gets it name because of its red fur and fox like facial features. Despite its size it is less feared than its cousin, the Vampire Bat, as it feeds mainly on fruit rather than blood.
