Flying Foxes

On one part of Janpath (one of the major streets in New Delhi), there are a few trees that are full of bats. And, they are big. It is quite amazing to see them hanging from the branches and to see an occasional flight.

I would have never known about these flying foxes, if it hadn't been for our driver, Anthony. He seems to know everything about Delhi and for that, I am very thankful.

Fun bat fact: my friend Julie (who has been staying with us for the past few days) informed me that there are 4,000 species of mammals in the world of which 1,000 are bats. I had no idea.
