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.

We must save these gorgeous creatures so that they may continue to frighten the shit out of future generations of humans.
