Here's an example of a Grey Headed Flying Fox, a type of very large bat native to Australia. It can live up to 15 years in the wild (22 in captivity) and can live in various habitats, from rainforest to swamp. Although these are big animals, they feed on pollen, nectar and fruit.

Honey bees are more important then what you think!! Animals and plants of all sorts rely on bees for pollination in order to help grow the crops that we need to eat and live. A loss of this highly important creature could mean hunger at a level that has never been seen. We are already facing a crunch in prices in our food and loss of crops due to storms (thank you global warming), but an extinction of this magnitude is beyond imaginable.
