The giant bat of Madacascar, Fangalabolo! 

I stumbled upon this cryptid when I was researching candidates for The Horrorscope.

This hair-pulling beast was thought to be an unknown species of fruit bat which was said to be larger than the Madacascan Flying Fox, which could have a wingspan of up to 5ft.

Yeah, when scale goes out the window, it just looks like any other bat-

but I couldn't let a name like 'Fangalabolo" pass me by.

First mentioned in print in 1950 (La Faun Malgache, son role dans less croyances et less usages indigenes)
