PhotoHunt - Upside down, under

DSC_4511
I spotted this fruit bat hanging upside down under a lush forest canopy at Singapore Zoo.

It's truly amazing that they can eat, sleep, and rest in this position most of the time.

Occasionally, you got to see one flying around before moving to another branch, crawling upside down, and then wrap itself up in its little cocoon. How fascinating!

  3. Yerrrr.... creepy creatures. I once had a family of bats make their home in my house. I was going to put that in today's PH but changed to another set of photos. :)

  11. I always get terrible goose bumps when seeing even small bats. Yours looked huge and amazing!! I think would faint if I saw that one.

    You really got a beautiful shot of it. Singapore is really a wonderful place to make such huge garden and animals sanctuaries under the canopy.

  18. Do they pee & poo upside down too? haha. Most likely NO right?. Wonder why they are called 'flying fox' coz of some similarity of a fox's head I guess? Nice shots
