North Davao’s Treasure: World’s Largest Colony of Bats

2 11 2011

In time for the Halloween! Do you know Batman? Of course, it’s not me yet many of us know him… But is he for real? He should have been here… πŸ™‚ AT THE WORLD’s LARGEST COLONY OF BATS – MONFORT CAVE!!!

One of the Five Bat Caves at Monfort Bat Cave Conservatory

It is estimated to have 1.8 million bats inside the cave. Before the darkness comes, all these bats fly! Wow! Isn’t it exciting? You will experience these bats cover the whole place as they fly from the cave. It’s a very beautiful work of nature.

It’s morning when we go there yet the bats are still flying around while others are sleeping.

In the conservatory, there are 5 holes where you can see the bats. You can see the bats from those wholes. Just an advise, visiting the Monfort caves, you have to bring a hand towel to cover your nose aside from a handkerchief. It is because the place is very aromatic, it might stress your nose. πŸ™‚

Certification of the Guinness for the Monfort Bat Conservatory

So far, the Monfort Bat Cave is recognized by the Guinness World of Records to have the most number of fruit bats estimated 1.8 million as of 2006. How many are these right now? πŸ™‚ Anyways, visiting Davao Region, it’s a must see! Visit Samal Island and ride with a habal going to Monfort Bat Cave. There’s an entrance fee of 40 pesos for its conservatory. πŸ™‚

Have fun!!!
