In New Jersey folklore, the Jersey Devil is a legendary creature said to inhabit the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey, United States. The creature is often described as a flying biped with bat-like wings, horns, small arms with clawed hands, cloven hooves and a forked tail.
Whether it is folklore or not, recently a Pennsylvania construction worker says he photographed an unknown creature he believes “had the exact marks” of the Jersey Devil.

The construction worker said: “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 said the creature began taking off the tree when his friend took the photograph.
The question remains; his friend took a picture of a megabat similar to the golden-crowned flying fox or is it something that cannot be explained?
