Bangladesh is inhabited by 38 species of bats (Order Chiroptera) of which three are frugivorous. One of the latter is the Indian flying fox Pteropus giganteus, a common species in the country. The Indian flying fox is widely distributed in South and Southeast Asia from Pakistan to China and as far south as the Maldives Islands. Although the IUCN deems it as a species of Least Concern the population trend is decreasing.
