Grey-Headed Flying Fox Loves Grapes (Video)

Charlie the grey-headed flying fox doesn’t want chicken soup when he’s at home in bed. He prefers to adorably stock up to five grapes in his mouth, chomping them on his way to recovery. After Charlie got himself stuck on a balcony one morning, he hurt his thumbs and needed some compassion (and fruit!). Watch this darling little bat get plenty of each.

cont ...Most bats eat many times their weight in insects every night, but Flying Foxes chow on pollen, nectar and fruit, and help pollinate and spread seeds of native plants.
And they can have a wingspan of over a yard wide. Impressive!

Hope Charlie is doing well.

I would like to thank all Care2 members who already signed my petition.
if no, please help give an happy end to that sad story :
1) Care 2
2) PeticaoPublica.com

But unfortunately this is still not the end of the sufferings for those animals. This Monday 28th july a stray horse was hit by a car and was euthanized due to an open fracture. link : Tribuna de Petropolis
As some people of the city and from the neighborhoods, took them to a sanctuary*, the hope is rising, it's up to you to make it grow by still sharing the petitions. I will tell you more about the sanctuary in the next update...

Thank you for caring
