Flying Foxes

Gladstone has its fair share of flying foxes. They live just opposite the Gladstone yacht Club. In the day they just hang around in complete open view to every one. They stink..... And at night they are everywhere. Amazingly no one eats them In Seychelles Flying Fox is a delicacy and I've managed to have some. It tastes like pigeon. Very bony but in a curry I suppose I could be forgiven if the taste was somewhat over powered by curry powder and chillies!!!

Anyway here I'm told they carry disease and cannot be eaten. Strange but that is the way it is. Pity looking at all this protein just hanging there waiting to be 'plucked' from the branches....
