Philippine's Fruit Bat on Top 10 New Species

This is Styloctenium Mindorensis, a species of large fruit bat that can be found only here in the Philippine island of Mindoro. This Mindoro striped-faced fruit bat (nickname "flying fox") ranked six on the Top 10 New Species of 2008. However it is believed that this beautiful creature is now threatened by habitat loss and hunting therefore needs conservation.
