Bismark Flying Fox, Ahool, Olitiau, or Kongamato

According to modern day science, the world's largest bat is that of the Bismark Flying Fox, an animal that does not gets larger than a six feet wingspread. According to cryptozoology, Modern scientists could be wrong. Several sightings from ostensibly reliable individuals recommend that this may not be the case. A variety of bat species that are just as huge or larger could be out there, waiting for science to formally acknowledge them. The island of Java, not very far from the Bismark flying fox's home of New Guinea, is supposed to harbor a bat with a twelve-foot wingspan referred to as the ahool. It cries sound like "A-hool" and it eats fish. it has grey fur and a flattened face with immense black eyes, with its head overall similar to that of a monkey's head. It's not attributed with supernatural powers, and appears like such a plausible animal that it has drawn the eye of naturalists. If a giant bat lived anyplace, the dense rainforests of Java would be a probable place.

Another plausible place for an undiscovered giant bat to live is Cameroon, a rustic country in Africa where scientists have rumored seeing an awfully similar bat. This creature is seemingly referred to as the olitiau by locals. It conjointly features a twelve-foot wingspan and a monkey-like face, however its fur is pure black. it's regarded with an excellent deal of superstitious notion and horror. It's not unbelievable that each of those giant bats might have monkey-like faces. Giant Bats have a notoriously wide range of head shapes, and plenty of legendary species have heads resembling totally different animals like foxes, dogs, lemurs or perhaps even horses!

Another potential African giant bat is that of the kongamato, which has conjointly been understood as a pterosaur by some cryptozoologists. This creature isn't quite so massive, has crimson colored fur, and features a long snout rather than a flattened face. Madagascar, a large island just off the coast of Africa, has tales about a bat referred to as the fangalabolo, with a wingspan larger than five feet, larger than any other bat known to live in Madagascar. The Guiafairo of Senegal is described as an enormous bat that's terribly putrid and sometimes manages to frighten folks by creating its way inside. It's despised greatly, and its name translates to "the fear that flies by night." The mlularuka of Tanzania is probably the foremost tame and normal of undiscovered African Giant Bats. Like known species of giant bats, it's a fruit-eater and so is principally spoken of as a tormentor to agriculture. it's described as being the size of a dog.

But this wasn't rumored in Africa, New Guinea, or the island of Java. This observation, and human attack happened in Tora Bora Afghanistan, and happened on film by Marines. These three men were in a cave and there was many bat creatures, or Cave Demons. These Giant Bats may have even been an Olitiau, additionally referred to as the Death Bat or Night Flyer. The Olitiau is a large humanoid cryptid bat (or flying reptile) hypothesized to exist in Central Africa.

There are several plausable explanations to what precisely attacked these men, and the way they managed to get into the caves. The caves were riddled with booby traps, and the one Corporal Wade set off, sent him tumbling twelve - fifteen feet, and right into the path of those Cave Demons. Maybe the Bat people were placed there by the enemy, when the traps were set. After all, animals everywhere around the world can be imported, if you have the proper connections.

Whatever it had been down in this cave of Afghanistan, Bat People, Cave Demons, or simply giant bats, it will remain a mystery.
