Flying Foxes are a very social and intelligent animal, four times smarter then dogs, and can be very curious. They live in large colonies, though because of habitat loss and other uncontrolled issues, this species is listed as vulnerable with less then 194,000
left in the wild.
They are vital to the biodiversity of the rainforest; spreading pollen and distributing up to 60,000 seeds a night over long distances as they forage. Some rainforest fruit seeds cannot germinate until passing through a bat's digestive system.
