The photos of a massive human-sized bat are going viral on social media and one must think that it is just a trick of photoshop. While we can’t believe most of the stuff we see on the internet, the viral pictures of the monster bats are real and the creatures indeed exist in our world.
Remember when I told y'all about the Philippines having human-sized bats? Yeah, this was what I was talking about pic.twitter.com/nTVIMzidbC

Someone on Twitter recently shared a few pictures of human-sized bats and everyone thought they were fake, but to the contrary, it was real and has also been proven by the locals. The human-sized monster bats are as real as they get. Here are more details on the bat species, what they eat how scary the creatures can be to others.
The Viral Human-Sized Bat is Real
Someone from the Philippines replied to the original post and confirmed that the human-sized bats are indeed real and these creatures exist in the country. The Twitter user also said that the bats are not as big as they look in the photos, but they have a massive wingspan and they are of the size of a medium dog.
Heya, from the Philippines here. I can confirm this, they have a huuuuuge wingspan but the bodies are not really that big, more or less like the same body as a medium (bit smaller) sized dog. And yeah they only eat fruits, guavas most particularly. They're really gentle too.

The human-sized bat eats fruits and that too guava mostly, and they are very gentle. However, another user commented that you better have a fruit basket ready for them, just in case the monster bats decided to attack you.
The idea scared me at first, but now that I think about it I'd probably have a fruit basket ready for them just in case

The Flying Fox Bats Details
The Flying Fox is the name of the bat species and they are not as big as they appear in the viral pictures, still, they are large enough to scare the most of us. While it is claimed that the Coronavirus outbreak originated from bats in China, it has made the monster bats scarier to everyone.
The Flying Fox has a wingspan of nearly 5 and a half foot and even Batman’s flying vehicle in Justice League is inspired by them. It has also been reported that the species shown in the pictures is Giant Golden-Crowned Flying-Fox which is currently in danger of extinction due to poachers.
