A quick visit with the fruit bats!

I've had a few requests for another fruit bat moment! Batty and Scar are having a great spring and enjoying an abundant variety of fruit. In addition to fresh fruit, these guys enjoy a mixture of lowfat yogurt, banana, and bat biscuits (a nutritional diet similar to pellets) as well as fruit juice.

Here you can see them relaxing after dinner (and still licking their lips).

They look like very well fed fruit bats :-)

Where do they live in the wild? Are yours rescued?
