This species of bat is found in the Asian archipelago. Despite being larger than other bats, these creatures are still relatively small in comparison to humans. They do, however, have unusually large and long wingspans.
The perspective in this image makes the bat appear much larger than it is; flying foxes are unquestionably not human-sized. Even though the largest species can reach wingspans of 1.7 meters (5.5 feet), their bodies are surprisingly small, measuring only 30 centimeters in length (11.8 inches).
Flying foxes are only found in a few areas of the world, but bats are found almost everywhere else. As a result, it’s easy to see why a recent image of a large fruit bat in the Philippines has gone viral on social media.
The image they tweeted was first shared on Reddit, where Filipino user sakundes claimed to have seen one of these majestic creatures in their backyard.
The bat, on the other hand, is undeniably real. Flying foxes are typically nocturnal or crepuscular, but the Reddit user included another image of the bat yawning after being awakened from its daytime slumber from a different angle.
A twitter page by the user name user ” Science Explorist

” 5 foot bat in the Philippines. Yes it’s real. No it won’t eat you. It’s a herbivore. But holy crap, it’s scary 😦 “
