This book introduces young readers to flying fox bats, the fruit-eating bats from the family Pteropodidae. Easy-to-read text examines flying fox bats' biology, sizes, behaviors, and dietary needs, and reproduction and pup development are introduced. An anatomy diagram helps readers identify body parts. Also covered is the bats' habitat, and a detailed map shows where in the world the bats live. Readers will learn about threats to the bats' environment such as hunting and deforestation, and conservation efforts that are in place, as well as the bats' important role in plant pollination and forest regeneration. Bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index enhance readability for young chiropterologists. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
