SUBIC BAY'S FLYING FOXES
This camp of over 10,000 fruit bats, readily seen at the Subic
Bay Freeport, is one of the last large bat colonies of its kind.
Found only in the Philippines, the Golden Crowned Flying Fox
(Acerodon jubatus) and the Philippine Giant Fruit Bat (Pteropus
vampyrus lanensis) are the largest bats in the world, with wingspans
up to 2 meters. Bats such as these eat only plants and are critically
important to the health of tropical forests in the Philippines.
By dispersing the seeds of forest fruits and
spreading pollen between the forest flowers they visit, fruit
bats maintain and restore forests by aiding in the reproduction
of forest plants. Many fruit crops important to people, such
as durian, wild banana, and kapok, also rely on fruit bats for
their reproduction. Their cute, puppy-like faces add to their
appeal. Despite this, fruit bats are heavily hunted, and the
loss of their forest homes has made many of these bats endangered
SUBIC BAY'S BAMBOO BATS
The bamboo bat, Tylonycteris sp., is the smallest bat found
in the Philippines. With a total wingspan smaller than a child's
hand length and weighing only about 2 grams, it is just slightly
larger than the world's smallest bat. Both of the world's two
species of bamboo bats are found in the Philippines, and Subic
Bay with its large bamboo forests is an important host to these
They have flat skulls that allow them to easily
enter the bamboo holes originally created by chrysomelid beetles.
Their suction cup feet make it easy to hang upside-down on the
smooth inside of the bamboo. Bamboo bats typically give birth
to twins and roost in harems, meaning one mating male with many
mating females and all their offspring.
Sometimes as many as 40 little bamboo bats
may be found roosting together in a single bamboo chamber. These
bats emerge from their bamboo hide-away at dusk to feed on insects,
especially termite swarms, and by dawn have already returned
to their home. So, bamboo bats are best seen in the sky when
the sun is setting. (Source WWF Subic).
