GIANT BATS! – Spectacled Flying Foxes

I filmed these spectacled flying foxes (Pteropus conspicillatus) on a tree outside Cairns Public Library in Cairns, Queensland, Australia. The tree is called Fruit Bat Tree on Google Maps. This footage is from June 2013, so I don’t know if the bats are still there or not. Hopefully, they are because they are now an endangered species.

Also, in case you happen to go to Cairns and want to see these critters, I have included a map below.
