What is a flying fox?

Flying fox - is a kind of bat and is so cold because its head some what resembles that of the fox. Most bats are small and look like winged mice. But flying foxes can be as big as little dogs and have a wing span of up to six feet. Their habits are rather similar to those of ordinary bats except that they are fond of fruit a peculiarity which makes them great pests in orchards. Flying foxes of different species are found in Malaysia, India and other parts of Asia, islands of Pacific and Indian Oceans. Flying foxes rely on sight instead of sound for finding their way.
