Giant Golden-Crowned Flying Fox: The Human-Sized Bat

Recently, photos of a species of bat that can grow to the size of a human have been going viral on social media. You'll understand why when you see it.

The image was originally published a year ago on Reddit but it didn’t become popular or go viral until recently when Twitter user @alexjoestar622 shared the terrifying photo of a human-sized bat.

This species is said to originate from the Philippines and is known as Acerodon jubatus or Giant golden-crowned flying fox and is considered the largest species of bat in the world, capable of reaching up to 1.7 meters in height.

However, this species is currently endangered as a result of poaching. It should be noted that this breed poses no threat to humans since its diet consists mainly of fruits and vegetables.

Don’t forget to check out the incredible images that have gone viral all over the world in the video above.
