Description:Though their specie is unknown, this image depicts numerous flying foxes of the genus Pteropus, which were hanging up-side-down from the trees in their resting position.
The natural reservoir for Hendra virus is thought to be flying foxes (bats of the genus Pteropus) found in Australia. The natural reservoir for Nipah virus is still under investigation, but preliminary data suggest that bats of the genus Pteropus are also the reservoirs for Nipah virus in Malaysia.
