May 2019: Livingstone’s Flying Fox
Throughout the month of May 2019, FaunaFocus will feature its first bat, the Livingstone’s flying fox!
The Livingstone’s flying fox is an Old World fruit bat, or megabat, and is one of the largest and most endangered of the bat species. Endemic to only two islands of the Comoros island chain, just off the coast of Africa, this herbivorous frugivore resides in forests and is threatened by habitat loss and human influences. This species is listed as Critically Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
