Kuri The Spectacled Flying Fox 3

Kuri is the only Spectacled Flying Fox in the USA that is here legally. She lives at Lubee Bat Conservancy, and is very happy there! I saw her at Lubee on Photo Day, and when I heard her story I knew that I had to share it with you. One morning Lubee found a Spectacled Flying Fox in a cage on their doorstep with a note that said, “Hi my name is Kuri! Will you please take of me?” The people at Lubee think that she was sold through the black market, and then someone could not take care of her, so they left her at Lubee. After going through the legal process of staying in this country, Kuri is living happily ever after! When I was at Lubee she looked very happy and ate cantaloupe!

These are some photos that I took of Kuri on Lubee Photo Day!

    Hi Eliza, Thanks for sharing Kiri’s story. I’m so glad the person who had her got her to sanctuary when they couldn’t keep her. I’m not familiar with this species, except that I know flying foxes are generally large. Would you do a post sometime that talks more about the species in general?

    Thanks for educating us!
