Of the remaining three species, only two were believed to be present on Viti Levu, but I got three… The first two are Flying Foxes. Pteropus tonganus can be easily seen in the Presidential compound in Suva. I had a few Pteropus samoensis there as well, keeping their distance.
I saw the latter in its much more typical habitat, the forest above Suva, Colo-I-Suva Forest Park. That place has most of the endemic bird species too. (You can stay at Colo-I-Suva Rainforest Resort: it’s a lovely place to stay and not too expensive.)
I like to keep the best for last… The annoying thing about a website though, is that it’s hard to create suspense when you can simply scroll down. I hope you haven’t though as what I’ve said before is interesting, hopefully.
I still managed to keep it from you a few more seconds though.
Anyway, I have to tell you now. When I visited the cave on Viti Levu, at the other end of the main chamber with the not-so-endless supply of bats, I noticed a few smaller bats, flying high up against the ceiling.
