Cricket is a popular sport in Sri Lanka. We visited the Nondescripts Cricket Club and watched a couple of teams practicing on the field. The most interesting part, at least for me, was not the guys on the field with bats, but rather the bats flying above the field.
The bats flying by were Indian flying foxes (Pteropus giganteus), which is one of the largest bats in the world. These bats eat fruits and nectar and they often roost in large groups in the tops of trees.
