he golden flying fox species of bats occupies a very special place on the internet, despite the fact that bats have historically been highly contentious in the media, particularly in the previous two years. Thought to be phony or photoshopped many years ago when this particular species of bats started to appear more frequently in the media, this particular species may grow to heights of more than 7 feet.

Although they seem like ideal predators and their fox-like appearance gave rise to the name, they are essentially herbivores. Although the bat’s body is rather small, its wingspan gives the impression that it is much larger. Several individuals from the Philippines have posted images of bats in their backyards on social media platforms.

They may appear to be a menace to people because of their enormous size, yet the opposite is actually true. In fact, the species is in danger in the Philippines because of the degradation of their natural habitat and the hunting of animals for human consumption. Climate change is a serious threat to this species, according to biologists.

Due to their excellent gliding skills, they can cover a great deal of ground quickly and effortlessly thanks to their large wingspan. In the correct circumstances, larger specimens can cover up to 250 kilometers in a single night. This makes the species more adaptable and makes migration simpler in the event that it becomes necessary owing to climate change or other circumstances that could affect their natural habitat.

In actuality, the golden-crowned flying fox is a highly significant component of the ecology, perhaps even more so than bees. Since this species mostly consumes fruits, it aids in dispersing the seeds across the natural habitats, ensuring the sustainability of future growth as well as the replanting of plants.
