SPECTACLED FLYING FOX or SPECTACLED FRUIT BAT
The Spectacled Flying Fox is a megabat also known as the Spectacled Fruit Bat, lives in Australia’s north-eastern west regions of Queensland. It is also found in New Guinea
Spectacled Flying-foxes are forest dwellers and rainforests are their preferred habitat. They prefer to roost in the middle and upper canopy strata in the full sun. Colonies of the Spectacled Flying-fox can be found in rain forests, mangroves, and paperbark and eucalypt forests. No colony is known to be located more than 7 km from a rainforest.
They are considered vulnerable due to a significant decline in numbers as a result of loss of their prime feeding habitat and secluded camp sites.
