I'm pretty sure about the ID of these fruits, but not 100%. Leaves do not match fruit--those are from a vine climbing the tree. I am terribly allergic to the leaves of this tree.

Description

Suborder Megachiroptera- fruit bats or megabats or megachiropterans
Family Pteropodidae- all megachiropterans
There were four of these beautiful giants roosting along the main beam of our banda. I thought this one looked a little chunky, and the explanation came when a little nose popped out from under the wing. I know New World bats fly with their small young, but that seems unlikely with one this size. If the baby couldn't fly she must have left it somewhere else, as they all left at dusk.
Thanks to Jakob at Afribats and Lara and Charles Foley for the id- any guesses on the species? at Pangani, Tanga, Tanzania

I'd be interested in more information on what's going on here- is the female still lactating? is the youngster fully volant?
