I'm inherently leery about photos of people standing behind supposedy "huge" animals, it's our old friend "forced perspective" at work.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Oh look!! They even got massive duct tape to fasten it to the poles.


Oh wait......................

Actually I genuinely am interested in this cryptid. I've never seen a bat smoke a stogie. Clearly this bat is a little more refined, and enjoys its fruit with a cheeky dessert wine.

(Translation) Peru’s army has captured something truly awful this animal as you can see in the photograph appears to be a giant bat, an animal is too weird. Apparently this animal usually frighten many people walking through areas of Peru and elsewhere in Latin America, is said to be the Chupa Cabras.
The chupacabra is an animal attack is characterized by animals of different species, located in rural and pastoral areas. The myth originated in the island of Puerto Rico. It is said that there is in Central and South America, in countries like Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru, etc.
You could say that sucks goats is a true example of a giant bat species often found in Indonesia. –

WTF was up with the translation ....  total failure ....

I think it is just a Flying Fox.  They are actually beautiful animals and eat fruit and nectar.

Mega Bat : Philippine Giant golden-crowned flying fox.

The Giant Golden-Crowned Flying-Fox Bat is a rare species, and one that features very long wings. In fact, they are so long that it is often seen with them wrapped around the body like a cloak. The wings can end up being up to five feet wide when fully displayed. It is considered to be the largest bat in the world. This bat has a face that looks very similar to that of a fox.
The only home of the Giant Golden-Crowned Flying-Fox is in the Philippines. The species is endangered and is currently facing the possibility of extinction because of poaching and forest destruction.

The giant golden-crowned flying fox gets its species name from the golden fur around the head, in sharp contrast to the black body. Like all other fruit bats, they have no tail. They are among the largest bats, with a wingspan of 1.5–1.7 m (4 ft 10 in–5 ft 7 in) and weighing 0.7–1.2 kg (1.5–2.6 lb).

No, these photos are not photoshopped. I can still tell you someone in the comments is going to be like, "NO WAY THAT'S REAL, BRO!" But those are my favorite types of animals to share with you all; ones that cannot possibly exist on Earth but do! The Giant Golden-crowned Flying Fox (Acerodon jubatus) is a prime example of one of those such animals.

Giant Golden-Crowned flying fox is found in Australia and the Phillipines...It has a wingspan of up to 8 Feet (2.6 meter) and is a type of fruit bat that lives in colonies of millions in australia but is endangered in the phillipines due to poaching.
