The fruit bat (also known as the "flying fox") is a member of the suborder Megachiroptera. These bats, as their name suggests, are large fruit-eating bats achieving a wingspan of up to 6 feet. Fruit bats are an old world species and are found in Africa, Asia, and Australia. Due to their diet, many species of fruit bats can cause widespread devastation to fruit crops and are considered to be pests in many areas. Fruit bats are extremely important for pollinating numerous plants and dispersing seeds to help regenerate forests.
