KIDIKE PEMBA FLYING FOX FOREST

OVERVIEW

With characteristic dog-like facial features, the Pemba flying fox (Pteropus voeltzkowi), weight 400- 650g (0.9 1.4 lb). They have a wingspan of 1.6 meters. These are large fruit bats with chestnut-red fur, orange underpants, and a black face and wings. The ears are short and pointed. Gathering in mixed-sex groups of up to 850 individuals to roost, the Pemba flying fox creates quite a spectacle. The bats remain faithful to the roost (often a group of large, mature trees), returning from feeding trips in huge flocks. The mating time is between January and April, births occurring between June and August.

The Pemba flying fox’s diet consists of mangos, breadfruit, figs, flowers and leaves, and may be the only species on the island that disperses larger seeds, thereby proving essential to the survival of the plants that produce them. Unlike insectivorous bats (Microchiroptera), this species does not use echolocation, instead using vision to locate fruit.
