Fruity Bat Births Surprise Park Keepers

A colony of fruit bats at a wildlife park in Essex surprised their keepers with some unexpected deliveries. Staff at the Tropical Wings park in South Woodham Ferrers, near Chelmsford,thought their Egyptian fruit bat colony was made up entirely of females. But the theory was blown apart in late January when eight of the 15 bats produced babies. The park’s head of mammals, Fiona Martin, said the arrival of the young bats was a “complete surprise, I honestly thought if you had sex standing up you could not get pregnant but obviously you can if you are upside down” She also added: ” I would urge people not to try to replicate this practices they could have a serious accident”
