Fruit Bats

The Similan Islands National Park is the home to at least 16 species of bats, among other various wildlife. On one of these islands if you look up the tall trees you can see thousands of these fruit bats sleeping  away the day. It’s quite remarkable how these creatures can sleep in such heat and bright sunlight. These bats make the scariest and most evil sound I’ve ever heard any animal make.
