Grey Headed Flying Foxes - Slowmotion and dipping behaviour
Instagram – http://instagram.com/lerako - During heat events, grey-headed flying foxes (Pteropus poliocephalus) cannot cool down enough by only flapping their wings and they fly down to the nearest river to belly dip in order to do so (and proceed to drink the water of their fur as well). An incredible spectacle. Flying-foxes are an important part of our ecosystems by dispersing seeds far and wide.
Thank you everyone who helped me with this video and their supports for our incredible flying-foxes.
