A remarkable trick, considering the fruitbat is not native to NZ, at least as far as I can recall off hand. There are two native bats to NZ but they are very rare. I can't rule out the possibility of fruitbats having colonised the upper North Island but I've never heard of it. - andrew. -- Andrew Smith, Intheologus
