Fruit bats live in the trees, in large groups. They eat fruit or lick nectar, for food. They use their sharp teeth to puncture fruit to get to the juices, not to bite or drink blood.
They sometimes are the main pollinators of certain flowers, since they're fuzzy and drink nectar. Many plants rely on them to reproduce.
They're very social. They also, unlike most bat species, have very very good eyesight.
Prints of this bat can be found here.
