In New Jersey folklore, the Jersey Devil is a legendary creature stated to inhabit the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey, United States. The creature is commonly described as a flying biped with bat-like wings, horns, small arms with clawed fingers, cloven hooves and a forked tail.

Whether it’s folklore or not, not too long ago a Pennsylvania building employee says he photographed an unknown creature he believes “had the exact marks” of the Jersey Devil.

The building employee stated: “I was driving back from Philadelphia. I don’t really remember the exact part I was at but me and my friend were in the car and we saw what seemed to be a massive vulture in a tree, it was getting dark out, so we couldn’t make out the features well at all, thus I told to my friend to get out his phone for a picture.”

The Pennsylvania man stated the creature started taking off the tree when his buddy took the .

At first look the creature appears to be like like a megabat just like the golden-crowned flying fox which is likely one of the largest bats in the world. 

This bat can attain as much as 1.2 kg (2.6 lb) in weight and 1.7 m (5.6 ft) in wingspan and is endemic to forests in the Philippines.

The query stays; his buddy took an image of a megabat much like the golden-crowned flying fox or is it one thing that can not be defined?
