Though the American Samoa consists of five main islands and two coral atolls, the National Park of American Samoa only spans across 3 islands. The only U.S. National Park to exist below the equator, it covers 13,500 acres including land, ocean waters, and coral reefs. The Samoan Fruit Bat can be seen all around the island whether hanging from trees, flying around, or feeding on fruit. Unlike many other bats, they are active in both the day and night, so are easily seen by visitors. With a wing span of up to 3ft, these bats are larger than most! If you visit the park in the late Spring or Summer, you will probably see young pups still attached to their mothers.
