Grey-headed Flying-foxes (Pteropus poliocephalus) at a colony hang together on a branch
Grey-headed Flying-foxes (Pteropus poliocephalus) at a colony hang together on a branch over the Yarra River (Melbourne).
These bats form part of a colony that was established here in early 2000's by the banks of the Yarra when the colony was moved from Melbourne's Royal Botanical Gardens. In summer, colony numbers can swell to over 40,000 from a population of around 5,000 over winter.
