Another Colugo Encounter

I spotted this little fella last week and did such a bang up job on taking photos of it that I had to look for it again. Well I found it hanging upside down, which is how Colugos rest in the day.Once it knew I was there it moved and I finally got the shots that I have been dying to get. A Colugo looking straight at my camera lens. Notice how large the pupils are, Colugos are nocturnal hence the large pupils to allow more light it much like a camera shutter.Colugos live alone or in small loose groups and they spend their time in dense foliage high in the tree canopy or in tree holes. They feed on flowers, buds, shoots, young leaves, fruit, nectar and sap.
