Flying foxes

There are two species of fruit bat around Sydney, actually three but one is all black. Unfortunately the head colour is hidden on all individuals bu they do look as though they could be black which would make them little red flying fox. However what you can see is that the fur is two tone, orange round the head and shoulders and silver grey on the back which makes them grey-headed flying foxes, little reds are orange red all over.
