Fruit Bat by DancingfoxesLF Fruit Bat by DancingfoxesLF
Okay so i'm starting my 'animal challenge' meme from scratch again <3 I want to start doing really good detailed pictures of them so i can eventually print them out and use them to put together in a book ^^ so heres my first little guy!
The fruit bat :heart:

________________________________________________________________________________________
Scientific name: Pteropodidae
Order: Chiroptera
Location:The rainforest's of Asia, Europe, Africa, and Australia (Variouse species)


Description

The Fruit Bat falls into the category of the Megabat and sometimes they are called the Flying Fox in some locations. There are many differences in their size from one location to the next. Due to that variation these bats are often mistaken for many different types rather than being identified as the same.

For example some Fruits Bats are no more than two inches long. Others though are more than 16 inches in length. Some of them only weigh an ounce or two and others weigh in at a couple of pounds. The overall wing length of the Fruit Bat can be more than five feet. These bats have large eyes and they also have excellent vision.

Very cute painting! You have some great fruit bat facts in your description, but you might want to make it more clear that the Megabat category includes well over a hundred species that share some common characteristics (fruit-eating, color vision, no echolocation, dog-like faces) but vary enormously in size. I wouldn't exactly say that they are "mistaken" for different types - rather, they are distinct species that all belong to the same suborder (Megachiroptera). I always enjoy seeing sweet, realistic images of bats on DA...keep up the good work!
