How to feed the Megabat in Phuket
Megabats, or flying foxes, are large Pteropodidae mammals which are significantly bigger than bats, as you can tell from the name. Their wings can reach as wide as 1,5 meters. 

At night, megabats are hunting for food (they prefer fruits), during the day they sleep upside down on the trees, covered in their leather wings. When the weather is especially hot, they will fan themselves with their wings.

 Megabats are cute, and completely safe to interact with for humans. They have no permanent day-spots, but you can find their noisy flocks in the shade of the trees, in the caves or among the branches of large bushes. 

If you encounter a flock, you have a great chance to give these lovely mammals some water from the bottle or feed them fruit — the flying foxes are particularly fond of mango, bananas, papaya and avocado. They enjoy the meaty flesh and juice, then throw away the peels.

Cherry18 September 2015Отличная идея! Никогда бы не подумала, что эти твари милые и не опасные)))
Но решиться к ним подойти, да еще и фруктами кормить - все-таки для смельчаков)
