A colony of Flying Foxes jostle for position one night, in the trees at Palm Cove (Queensland, Australia). Pteropus conspicillatus also known as the Spectacled Fruit Bat, lives in Australia's north-eastern west regions of Queensland. It is also found in New Guinea and nearby islands.

Recording chain: Panasonic WM61-A home made binaural mics - Edirol R09HR recorder.

    I plan to use this in my uni project - an interactive Flash game on collective nouns - and wanted to say thanks! It can be difficult to find appropriately licensed recordings of Australian animals, so I really appreciate it.

    Yes - lovely recording - very atmospheric and great to hear such an exotic animal - I would never have guessed they sounded like this.
