Flying Fox Fruit Bat

The giant fruit bat called "Flying Fox" is common in many areas of Southeast Asia and the Southwest Pacific.
This bat, the largest kind in the world, gets its name from the fox-like face, but it is not related to the fox.
This true bat, with almost no tail, is not the cause for the many reports of long-tailed "pterodactyls" in the
Southwest Pacific. The ropen of Papua New Guinea does not eat fruit, does not hold itself upside down
while resting, and does not really look much like a fruit bat. In some areas, however, some ropens may
eat bats, at least according to Jonathan Whitcomb, author of the nonfiction book Searching for Ropens.
"The old Flying-Fox-fruit-bat explanation had been soundly disproven, for many eyewitness reports and native accounts reveal a long-tailed fish-eating
creature with a head crest like that of some pterosaurs, and a bioluminescence brighter than any classified bioluminescent organism . . ."
For years, a few Americans have suggested that reports of giant "pterodactyls" living in Papua New Guinea
were only misidentified Flying Fox fruit bats. My associates and I disagree with that idea, but some of us do
believe that there is a bat-pterosaur connection, albeit far different than what's suggested by our critics.
"After a few years, I noticed that the U. S. sightings were spread out across the country. Some of them were
on the East Coast, so consider some web pages on some of those sightings."
"Like most active investigators of reports of living pterosaurs, I promote the axiom of Biblical creationism.
We defend both the Genesis account of creation and the worldwide Flood [Genesis account of Flood of Noah]."
