A pair of Fruit Bats
No paint, just paper!
Look closely and you will discover that these Fruit Bats have not been painted at all, but are finished with a ’skin’ of coloured papers.
These small pieces of colour have been gleaned from hundreds of magazines and make each piece OOAK and unique.
My Fruit bats are usually approx' 12" long and £150.00 each, but Buster is a one off size and is roosting with his wings closed. His brother Boo has his wings open.
They come as a pair!
Buster is pprox' 9'' long and Boo is approx' 6.5" and both will be happy to roost (maybe with a little help enclosed in the parcel) in most places. They will however need to be kept indoors.
They should hang easily from most door frames, poles, fireplaces etc. but don't forget that they are made of paper and keep them away from any naked flame. (remember, they may chase Moths in the Summer which in turn are attracted to candles!)
Please also avoid any damp conditions. Besides, a fruit bat staring at you in the bath tub can be quite disconcerting.
In your parcel you will find a short guide on how to keep your bat happy. First and foremost, make sure you keep the windows closed until after he settles into a regular roosting spot.
More hints and tips will be on the care sheet!
Finally, my bats have temporary creation names. Please feel free to re-name your Bat as you wish, but allow him to get used to his new name before you leave any windows open at night.
You may need to call him in if it starts to rain... 😉
