In the Wild:
Egyptian fruit bats are nocturnal. They spend their days roosting in trees or caves, with large groups of other bats, numbering in the thousands. They emerge from the roost to forage for food late evening & return just before dawn. They hang upside down, with their wings folded closely around their body. Bats use echo-location, which they accomplish by emitting a series of sharp clicks with their tongue. The clicks are normally slow & constant, & speed up when they approach an object.
The fruit bat is an important seed dispersers for many plants. The baobab tree exclusively relies on bats to pollinate its flowers. Persecuation due to crop raiding is a threat.
