Malayan Flying Fox | Largest species of bat on our planet.

That's a Malayan flying fox, one of several types of fruit bats. It is the largest species of bat on our planet with a body size of about 2 feet and a wingspan that can stretch to 6 feet wide. They weight 6 pounds. They've got super adorable faces, and are completely harmless to humans! Nummy fruit, on the other hand, doesn't stand a chance! they known as the large flying fox (Pteropus vampyrus), greater flying fox. Because of their large size, people have overhunted fruit bats for food, Malayan flying fox is listed as near-threatened in the IUCN Red List. Save Malayan flying foxes.
