The Peruvian army has captured something truly horrific, a human size bat, this animal as you can see in the photograph appears to be a giant bat. Apparently this animal has been frightening locals living near the amazon jungle bordering Peru. Recent reports state that this animal attacked several people walking through the jungle and elsewhere in Latin America.

Another example of photo trickery. Although this IS a real bat (a Pemba flying fox), the picture was taken in such a way that the bat appears to be almost as large as the man standing behind it. In actuality, these bats are 8 - 10 inches in length from head to toe.
