These very large Pemba flying fox fruit bats were almost totally exterminated for their delicious meat in the 1990's. But thanks to Fauna & Flora International organization and its conservation program the population of the Pemba flying foxes have increased form just a several species in the mid 90s to 36 thousands nowadays.
You can find these monster bats flying around the Pemba Island in Tanzania. Could you imagine never hearing about these types of bats before and you seem them flying around? Talk about crazy!
