Monfort Bat Sanctuary


Rousette fruit bats fly in between hundreds of bats resting at the Monfort Bat Sanctuary in Samal Island. In 2010, the Guinness World Records adjudged it as the largest single fruit bat colony of its kind in the world, although sanctuary management claims it now has over 2 million fruit bats.
