Many netizens posted comments trying to give more information about the mammal and tried to clarify doubts people had.
A picture shared on Twitter showing a 'human-sized' bat hanging inverted from a roof in the Philippines has taken the internet by storm. The picture was taken by a Twitter user called Alex, with the handle @AlexJoestar622. He posted two pictures on his feed of what looks like a giant bat. The creature is supposed to be a giant golden-crowned flying fox.
Take a look:
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— Alex💫 (@AlexJoestar622) June 24, 2020
He captioned the picture, "Remember when I told y'all about the Philippines having human-sized bats? Yeah, this was what I was talking about.”
Users commented on the post and tried to share information about the giant mammal. However, many are still confused about whether the animal is a bat or something else.
@_moontaeilnct shared a picture depicting the bat's wingspan and wrote: “Y'all the 5.58 feet means like this. Not the bat’s height itself.”
User @MarloMamocod tweeted a picture of what a giant golden-crowned flying fox looks like and wrote: “This is not a giant golden-crowned flying fox because the bat in your photo does not have the distinct yellow shade on the head of the bat and sometimes around its body.”
