Spectacled Flying Fox



Still playing with non-geometric pieces. As much as I love geometrics and the shapes and colours, sometimes certain animals just won't work and it can be super limiting, so it's nice to spread my creative muscles a bit! And I am loving playing with gouache!
This little cutie is a spectacled flying fox (from @natelledrawsstuff 's #sketchwithnds challenge!). They're a large, black coloured fruit bat found mostly in the north eastern of Australia. Highly social animals, they are persecuted by locals as they do sometimes raid orchards. They are key to seed dispersal and a single bat can disperse as many as 60,000 seeds in a single night.

Population : around 80,000 individuals
IUCN classification : Least Concern
