Jungle Trekking

Laamu Atoll and Gan Island allows travelers to get deep inside the interior of Maldivian islands. Today I made another Jeep Safari with Fauzi who….basically knows everything about everything. Image

On the eastern side of the island, close to where there are some remains of an ancient buddhist temple site, there are plenty of fruit bats to be seen. These are not actually ‘real’ bats as they do not have echo-location abilities to catch insects on the wing like ‘real’ bats. Fruit bats aka flying foxes grow huge. Occasionally seen during the day, they are especially visible in the twilight flying overhead.
