In Cairns we saw flying foxes. Flying foxes are fruit bats. Flying foxes are one of the largest bats. They come out of their trees at dusk to eat. They eat nectar and fruit at night. In the day the flying foxes sleep and get ready for the night. Every night the flying foxes fly up to 40 miles until they find their food. They have great eyesight but no sonar. Flying foxes are vulnerable because we cut down many of their roosting trees.
For two nights we saw the flying foxes in the sky. My favorite time we saw them was when they took off. When they took off they made a lot of noise. After that we went to an Italian restaurant. It was delicious.
