We're pleased to announce you can now visit our colony of little red flying foxes in the Australian aviary!
These tree dwelling bats are from the largest bat family in the world – they’re even called megabats! Like bees, these bats are great pollinators and play a critical role in dispersing seeds throughout the Australian forest.
Flying foxes are excellent at flying but also at climbing, using their feet and jointed thumbs to move about the forest canopy.
Our bats are sharing their aviary with Aussie birds like the red-tailed black cockatoo, rainbow lorikeet and Captain our cheeky sulphur-crested cockatoo. Catch our free keeper talks in the aviary at 2pm every day to learn more about these unique species.
