Wow, I had already forgot about earlier posts. You are completely right, it’s something I have had to deal with this and past summer. Thanks for the fact correction, I already changed it!

This grey-headed flying fox catches the last drops of water, at Parramatta Park, Sydney - poking out its little tongue, this bat captures every last drip of water on a scorching hot day. Flying in 40 degree heat, he ensures he catches as much liquid as possible as he tries his best to keep cool. This flying fox was photographed by Australian photographer Ofer Levy, 51, after he spotted it in Parramatta Park, Sydney. ‘This grey-headed Flying Fox is licking water drops from its dripping fur after swooping down dipping its belly in the river,’ said Ofer. ‘This is how these large bats drink’.
