Lyle's flying fox (Pteropus lylei)

Lyle's flying fox (Pteropus lylei) is a medium-sized flying fox which forms large colonies high up in trees. Lyle’s flying fox has a long dark muzzle, large eyes and a ring of orange fur around the neck, and bears some resemblance to a fox, hence the common name ‘flying fox’.

The wings and back of Lyle's flying fox are dark brown or black, which strongly contrast against the bright fur around the head and neck. Its lower body varies from a deep dark-brown to a brighter yellow-brown. Its breast and belly are black-brown, which is similar to the Malayan flying fox (Pteropus vampyrus)
