These were filmed over the Royal Botanic Gardens in central Sydney. Fruit-bats like this fly in streams over my home at dusk on their way to feed, from their roosts in the mangroves growing in inlets around the harbour.Down here they are mostly the fairly small Grey-Headed Flying Foxes, with adult wingspans up to about 1m. But in tropical Australia, how do bats with wingspans up to 1.8m strike you?

They're not well built for striking me, but would probably use their wings :-)

Holy wow, they fly while carrying their young? I always thought that bats were amateur flyers compared to most birds, given their shorter evolutionary history, but I don't know of any bird that carries their young with them while in the air! Having claws on your wings must really help with that.

Finally a drink you can really twerk with.

In other news I must have this.

It looks like a kopis!


but if it's electrical then its a power sword (or power kopis in this case!)

Though I like chainsword better.  Could have both with the frost blade I suppose.

Voting up for awesome picture, down for bad cropping.

You've got me thinking about that now.. I remember it being on an episode of Family Guy too.  I think it might be just a coincidence because you could definitely imagine him saying that.
