The Spectacled Flying Fox (Pteropus Conspicillatus) is a megabat that lives in Australia's North-Eastern regions of Queensland. This species lives in rainforests. They climb trees but they cannot walk. Spectacled flying foxes maintain a frugivorous diet that contains rainforest fruits and riparian zone flowers. They can fly long distances of up to forty-three miles. Spectacled flying foxes display highly social behavior, forming groups known as camps. A single camp contains tens of thousands of bats.
In the future, the population of these camps will decrease due to a loss of roosting areas. I believe the rainforests will become similar to a savannah, therefore spectacled flying foxes will evolve to adapt to their new environment by walking and jumping due to a decreased amount of trees. The spectacled flying fox will also expand its diet to eating small insects to become more of an omnivore due to a lack of fruit.
