Name Acerodon jubatus, Golden crowned flying fox
Distribution Endemic to the Philippines excluding the Palawan faunal region
Habitat Forest
Remarks Massive roosts numbering in thousands are known for this species however it is declined massively due to habitat loss and hunting. From the Polillos a roost of less than one hundred reported from Minasaw in 1999 was not present in 2001. Approximately 30 to 40 individuals were seen roosting in Burdeos. Further examinations are required to confirm these were A. jubatus and not Pteropus vampyrus.
