|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Egyptian fruit bats can be found roosting in groups as many as 10,000. Both male and female bats roost together in a colony. The bats crowd close together, always making body contact, especially with their young ones. |
These bats usually have only one baby each year, however sometimes they have twins. The mother bats carry their young at first, then leave them at the roosts while they hunt for fruit. Babies are about 3 months old before they learn to fly on their own. Young ones stay in the same colony as their moms and dads for most, if not all, of their lives.
