The photo has gone viral in recent days and, in the face of so many scary news in a pandemic year, doubts about its veracity are still recurring. But it is true: ‘Acerodon Jubatus’, as they are known, live in the Philippines, measure up to 1.30 meters and weigh 1.2 kilos – it is endangered, as its meat is considered a delicacy.
