Bat Pups

Bat Pups

A pair of mothers and their young. Bats give birth to only one pup each year. Grey-headed flying fox (Pteropus poliocephalus). After being scared out of Melbourne's Botanic Gardens by crowds of noisy people, the endangered bats made a home for themselves along the banks of the Yarra River in Kew. Bats play an important role in seed and pollen dispersion of native plants.
