We are frugivorous and nectarivorous and thus love nectar and pollen from the flowers of trees. Moreover, we eat various fruits like bananas, mangos, figs, dates and avocados – almost any kind of pulpy fruit is good for us. Because fruit is one of our primary foods, we are also known as fruit bats. We are also called flying foxes because we can soar in the air and our cute, furry faces look quite a bit like that of a fox! Bats, including megabats and microbats, are the only mammals capable of real and sustained flight with our own wings.
