The lesser short-nosed fruit bat flies at night and eats fruit, pollen, and nectar. They LOVE mangoes and other juicy, sweet fruits and will suck all the pulp out of them, leaving the skin behind.
They use their sense of smell to find food and to fly. They also have good eyesight for a bat, and can make noises to communicate with each other.
They live together in small families, roosting in palm trees. They live only in tropical places and do not like the cold.
Prints of this nocturnal lady can be found here.
