Large Flying Fox - Pteropus vampyrus
Pteropus vampyrus (Chiroptera - Pteropodidae) is one of the largest bats in the world. Forearm length ranges from 18 to 22 cm, and mean wingspan is 1.5 m. It has long pointed ears and a dog-like or fox-like face and head.
Large flying foxes inhabit tropical forests and swamps from Madagascar to Australia and in most of continental and insular Southeast Asia.
Flying foxes (genus Pteropus) are among the few wide-ranging frugivores still found in many parts of Southeast Asia and play important seed-dispersion and pollination roles in their ecosystems. However, besides their ecological services to humans, flying foxes also carry a number of zoonotic diseases such as the Hendra virus and the Nipah virus.
In some places throughout its geographic range P. vampyrus is hunted for sport, and there is a significant international market, both legal and illegal, for its meat and the various by-products that are used in traditional medicines. This species is currently considered to be globally Near-threatened by the IUCN.
This animal is absolutely adorable.

Bill Nye is my favorite
Dawkins needs to get over himself
Bam. Dawkins is a jerk.
Dawkins looks like he is being physically repelled by Bill Nye’s presence. Like Bill has this aura that pushes back assholes or something.
