I am talking about this beautiful guy:
Taiwan is home to over 30 different types of bats. Over half of these types of bats are endemic, which means that they can only be found in Taiwan. The Formosa Flying Fox is one that is unique to only Taiwan. It is also the largest species of bats on the Island.
I love bats, and love to photograph them in their natural environment. I have never had the priveledge to be up close to any bat of this size before. Now that I am here, I would love to find some.
Some zoological sites suggest that the Formosa Flying Fox can be found in caves alongside Taiwan’s northern coastal highway in summer. Anyone know of any caves? Anyone seen one of these guys before?
