Fruit Bats - Battambang, Cambodia

Random fact, #29 on our countryside tour around Battambang: Fruit bats call this tree at a local temple their home. The monks who live there must work hard to protect them, however, since the local villagers have taken a liking to bat meat. Apparently, it tastes better than chicken (not just *like* chicken, but *better* than chicken). Makes sense, since the bats feast on fruit (papaya's their favorite) all day long.
