Taronga Zoo Sydney Australia - Bats

" Trying to count all these guys would make you batty! They may look unusual but it’s important to keep threatened species like these tiny Eastern Bentwing-Bats on your radar. Take the time to look up and appreciate the often forgotten locals in your backyard this Monday on National Threatened Species Day. Micro-bats like these are vital for a functioning, healthy ecosystem as they help keep insect populations at bay. Sadly these animals are under threat due to the loss of productive foraging ground. You can get a close look at the world’s largest micro-bat – the ghost bat – in the Australian Nightlife Exhibit here at Taronga. Picture by Bruce Thomson.

" Flying Foxes have a bad reputation but they actually play a vital role in Australia's forests spreading the seeds of trees and plants from which they have eaten through their droppings "

" Meet Ralphie the Flying-Fox who lives at the Zoo’s Education Centre where students can get up close and meet some of Australia’s remarkable animals. Is the bat the only flying mammal – yes or no? "

" Taronga’s newest nocturnal animals have just been welcomed into their brand new exhibit – just in time for Halloween! In their almost pitch-black home, you’ll be able to see the Ghost Bats roost in their cave and if you’re lucky, you’ll see them swoop past. Their name comes from the beautiful ‘ghost-like’ appearance of their wings when they are reflected in the moonlight. "
