With a wing-span of 1.5m - they are one of the world’s largest bat species.

While bathing in Topa Mata you can see hundreds of flying foxes hanging in the surrounding trees during the day. According to the villagers these animals have been in Topa Mata for many decades. Only when there was an outbreak of disease among the people of Wali these flying foxes miraculously disappeared, but returned soon after the last person was healthy again. Topa Mata is located around 100 meters from Wali´s cemetery, close to Jalan Poros Wali Jaya Makmur.
