The Andersen's flying fox (Pteropus intermedius) is a species of flying fox in the Pteropodidae family found in south Burma and west Thailand. Although it is hunted for both food and as a pest, it is not known if this has a significant impact on the species.[1] The species was named after Knud Christian Andersen
