The Malayan flying fox (pteropus vampyrus) is a very large fruit eating bat from Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, Tonga, and Vanuatu. It is the largest bat by wingspan as it's wingspan can reach 6 feet and yet they weigh only a little of 2lbs. They do not use echolocation and are very similar to early bats except in that they do not possess a stabilizing tail. Apparently, they are considered tasty as they are very heavily hunted in their native range in 2003 over 4000 individuals were taken by hunters in a site that was being monitored. It may also be believed by some cultures that their meat can cure asthma.
