Egyptian Fruit Bat?

Postby KKM » Thu Nov 17, 2016 5:36 pm

As far as I'm aware, all fruit bats are federally banned, but one recently popped up on exoticanimalsforsale.net from Panhandle Exotics. Is there a loophole for this species?

Pteropus is banned not all bats that eat fruit. Quit a few people actually have "fruit bats" especially the Egyptian fruit bats. But not Pteropus the "flying fox" that is the banned one.
