People Are Absolutely Losing Their Minds Over The Philippines’ Human-Sized Bats

Ruining absolutely everyone’s day, @AlexJoestar622 decided to share photos of these horrifying behemoths to Twitter. And while they look and sound too bonkers to ever actual exist, it turns out that the giant golden-crowned flying fox is 100% real.

Just like the photo says, the giant golden-crowned flying fox is native to the Philippines and has a wingspan of up to 1.7  meters or about 5′6″. The species is endangered, and while fuck-off massive, pose no real threat to humans as they are frugivorous, like the common fruit bat.

They are about the size of a 6 year old child.
