Later it was discovered that the photo actually originated two years ago on Reddit by a Filipino User who discovered the human-sized bat in their backyard. The camera angle and perspective of the image actually make it seem a little bigger than it actually is, but the truth remains the same, that the image is absolutely real.
The largest bat species can do reach a wingspan of 1.7 meters that approximately makes 5.5 feet meanwhile their bodies do not achieve such enormous dimensions, it limits itself at 11.8 inches. However there is no doubt that the image is true because other pictures of the same bat specie were also discovered from different angles that cleared the air on the authenticity of its existence.
