Pteropus is a genus of megabats which are among the largest bats in the world. They are commonly known as fruit bats or flying foxes, among other colloquial names.
They live in the tropics and subtropics of Asia, Australia,* East Africa, and some oceanic islands in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.*

Scientific name: Pteropus
Higher classification: Old World fruit bats
Class: Mammalia
Mass: Large flying fox: 2.1 lbs
Length: Grey-headed flying fox: 11 in., Black flying fox: 10 in., Great flying fox: 11 in.

❤ most all bats (exception being the Vampire bats of Central and South America).
The insects eating ones keep our neighborhood mosquito problem down and folks here build "bat houses" for them.

On edit: I first thought this lady was in the UK but she's an Aussie in Australia! Love her sweet voice.
