Belated big Bat Baby burden. DSC_011155

Baby clamps on with two clawed feet around the abdomen, and barbed baby teeth firmly gripping a nipple under the wing - ouchie!!

 

I took these shots back in January, but didn't get around to posting them. Some text books say the Flying Fox carries its young for about a month.

Well these ladies are still lugging their huge "babies" around after about 3 months! Dedicated ladies!!!!
