The Malayan flying fox (Pteropus vampyrus) is native to Southeast Asia and can be found in Vietnam, Myanmar, the Malaysian Peninsula, Indonesia, Borneo, and the Philippines.

    The Malayan flying fox does not echolocate but uses its excellent eyesight and sense of smell to find its way around and search for food. They eat pollen, nectar, flowers, leaves and fruit and are important pollinators and seed dispersers for tropical trees.
