Dubai is now home to region’s first flying foxes

Dubai’s very own tropical rainforest, The Green Planet, is now the new home for flying foxes – one of the largest ‘megabat’ species in the world capable of sustained flight. From September 16 2022, guests have been witnessing the Middle East’s first flying foxes at the biodome that hosts over 3,000 plants and animals across four indoor rainforest levels.

Highly social with tawny fur that glistens in the sun, the flying foxes will be living alongside lemurs, sloths and parrots, and guests can witness them flying freely across the enclosed biodome. Visitors will be able to engage and take pictures with the animals, and learn more about these super social folks commonly known as Malaysian flying foxes.

Green enthusiasts will get to engage and get up close with these fascinating mammals. They will be able to click pictures with them and learn more about these super social folks commonly known as Malaysian flying foxes. These Megabats play an important role in keeping native forests healthy by dispersing seeds and pollinating flowering plants, with a wingspan of 1.8m or more. The wingspan of the flying foxes arriving at The Green Planet will be up to 1m and weigh up to 1kg. Adding to the six unique zones featuring sloths, piranhas, tropical birds and reptiles, these aerial wonders will be included as part of the single-day experience at the Green Planet Dubai.
