  Lyle's Flying Fox

 

Cambodia

Lyle's Flying Foxes high up in a tree on the outskirts of Siam Reap. Apart from a golden-brown crown and lower body, this medium-sized flying fox is mostly blackish.

 

The wings each have a clawed thumb at the top, which is used to draw food to the mouth and for scratching, as seen in this individual which is scratching its nose with it. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
