1 Are those Flying Foxes? They don't have the strange ears and nose of a bat that uses sonar.

2 Yep, those are flying foxes.  Might be two different species (there are four species of flying fox, three common), or that might just be age / individual variation.
In this second video you can see a bit more clearly, some have grey heads and reddish-brown bodies, and some are black all over.  Two of the common species are the grey-headed flying fox and the black flying fox, so I'm guessing they got some of each to be looked after.

I know I'm supposed to say that they're cute, but I don't think they are.

They're a very important part of the ecosystem and according to Stephen Jay Gould they're one of the three most successful groups of mammals (along with rodents and antelope) that are found nearly everywhere on Earth, and I'm glad they're around. But they aren't in any regard "cute", even the babies.

5 I'm not dead or dying or seriously ill, and haven't been staked out on the prairie to be devoured by fire ants.  

But my day job has been a leetle overwhelming the last month or so.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
