This is a kalong or Pteropus vampyrus , people call them many ways from flying-dogs/foxes to giant/mega-bats or simply as vampires. They are very large, half meter head to toes with wingspans of over one and a half meter length in many cases!!! Imagine a colony of these nesting and flying around your house! ... This image, of course, is upside down!

Hello Radu,
Excellent close-up of this "monster"! Great details and impressive light. I like the way his big claws are shown here. (We've seen them in Sydney Botanical Garden where there are too many so they are causing great problems!)
Many thanks, Ulla
