Just a little batty

Recently my kids and I visited the Columbus Zoo, Aquarium, and Water park located in Columbus Ohio.  One of the rare things we saw there was the "Flying Fox".  Now I had not seen any bats this size anywhere.  Most are fairly small, but this little guy (ok not so little) can have a wing span of up to 6 feet across.  WOW!  The good news is they are fruit bats and are native to Asia.  I still would hate to see this thing coming at me.  Looks like something out of one of those prehistoric movies I have watched.
