Imagine seeing this in your backyard. 

“The giant golden-crowned flying fox (Acerodon jubatus), also known as the golden-capped fruit bat, is a rare megabat and one of the largest bats in the world. In fact, the bat’s wings are so long that it is often seen with them wrapped around the body like a cloak. The wings can end up being up to five feet wide when fully displayed and weigh about 2 ½ pounds. The species is endangered and is currently facing the possibility of extinction because of poaching and forest destruction. The only home of the Giant Golden-Crowned Flying-Fox is in the Philippines.”

BATS IN YOUR BACKYARD

Welcome to your daily dose of bat facts for the month of October! Happy National bat month!

The giant golden-crowned flying fox is a very rare megabat. This beauty can be found in the Philippines and is the largest bat in the world. It is currently facing possible extinction because of deforestation and poaching. When people threaten the existence of bats, they sometimes don’t realize what it could mean to their own surroundings. The giant golden-crowned flying fox’s diet consists of fruits. They are known as “The Silent Planter” because they pass seeds from the fruit they eat in their droppings, helping to reestablish more plants. Some forests have found no help needed with reforestation in just a couple years due to the help of bats.
