Meet the flying foxes

Nature lovers unite! It’s time for a true tropical encounter, complete with the very fascinating flying foxes – now taking flight at The Green Planet Dubai. Highly social with tawny fur that glistens in the sun, flying foxes are one of the biggest bat species in the world capable of sustained flight. Calling it their new home, living alongside the lemurs, sloths and parrots, these new residents will be seen flying freely across the enclosed biodome. Green enthusiasts will get to engage and get up close with these fascinating mammals, click pictures and learn more about them. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) recently evaluated their species as nearly threatened. They have an average life span of 15 years in the wild. However, under human care, they can live up to 30 years. The Green Planet’s conservation efforts will form part of crucial global work to protect the species.
