Livingstone’s Flying Fox

Livingstone's Flying Fox

After mating, male Livingstone’s flying foxes will leave the female to raise and care for the young, weaning them for 4-6 months.

There is limited information available specifically on parental investment in the Livingstone’s flying fox, but males are known not to stay around after mating, leaving the females to raise and care for the young.

The young are weaned within 4 to 6 months of being born.
