The Bats of Subic Bay

Golden Crowned Flying Fox

We were able to take some shots of the bats of Subic Bay during our visit there last September 21, 2009.

It took a while before we finally found them, having driven as far as Cubi point. We almost gave up actually, but on our drive back we found hundreds of these giant bats hanging from very tall trees along the road beside the former FedEx compound. Boy, were we glad to have found them.

The bats were huge and there were a lot of them in the trees patiently waiting for sunset to feed.

More on that Subic vacation here.


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 with extinction.

Walking the Streets of Cubao Expo

I've lived in Quezon City for almost a decade. When I was there, I've been to a lot of very interesting places and have heard about a lot more places that I've not been to but planned to see one way or another. But I have never been to the Cubao Expo nor was it ever on my list of places that I've wanted to see. It is only after I've moved back to the province that I've actually visited the place. And I'm so glad I did. When I first saw it, I thought it was amazing how this quiet little complex is bursting in the seams of art, culture, and all-around indie and bohemian vibe and I have not even heard of it when I was living in the same city. This is for me definitely one of Quezon City's best kept secrets.

Here are some of the quaint and unique restaurants and shops you can find at the Cubao Expo.

See and experience what these wonderful shops have to offer. Visit the Cubao Expo at Gen. Romulo Street, Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City.
