Fruit Bats

Here’s a pic of two fruit bats relaxing in the afternoon sunshine in a tree in Manyara, Tanzania…

I don’t know whether these bats are identical to the fruit bats we have here in India… for example, these two birds are identical to their Indian cousins:


african drongo

and this SHRIKE, feeding her baby:

Could someone enlighten me?
