Only in the Philippnes

This is all over the web front page and i couldn't miss the chance to share it to my page as well. It's the largest bat in the world ever! The species named the giant golden-crowned flying fox also known as the golden-capped fruit bat and very rare mega bat in the existence of bats. Measures the wings to 4 ft and 10 in wide, with 5 ft and 7 in tall. Looks so freaky and creepy to me actually as we all know the bat represent a thing right? In addition the fruit bats can be found in the forest of the Philippines such as in Bohol, Cebu, Leyte, Boracay and somewhere in Mindanao and Luzon areas. However, the good thing though even they'e giants they are not the carnivorous type they eat fruits mostly figs, but if figs aren't available other fruits are their options.

So that's all i was just so amazed by seeing this humongous bat this could be another addition to Guinness book of world records!

THIS PHOTO LOOKS LIKE IT HAS BEEN PHOTOSHOPED. WHAT DO THEY HAVE HANGING OUT OF THE BATS MOUTH. IT MAKES THE IMAGE LOOK LIKE IT HAS BEEN FAKED. KOUDOS TO THOSE WHO DISCOVERED IT IF IT IS A GENUINE SPECIMEN, BUTG IT IS VERY HARD TO CONCIEVE THAT THIS CREATURE IS REAL.

Joshua, there's a bat this size in captivity, living, in a zoo in Columbus Ohio, so no, it's not faked, these are real.

As amazing as the bat is, what they did to it is not! This bat is an endangered species! Not a damn showcase!
