An image circulating around the internet shows a human-sized bat in the Philippines, however, the true nature of the creature is a little more complicated than that.
The photo popped up on Twitter last Wednesday when a user shared the image and wrote "remember when I told y'all about the Philippines having human-sized bats? Yeah, this was what I was talking about."
The post quickly went viral with over a hundred thousand users sharing the image.
However, there is more to the story than meets the eye.
The creature in the photo is a species of bat native to the Philippines and is known as a giant golden-crowned flying fox.
While they do grow to tremendous size, the description of this particular animal as 'human-sized' is generous at best and, as later noted by the individual who posted the photo, the bat is about the size of a six-year-old child.
