The legendary Orang Bati is not a giant flying fox what Richard Terry thinks. Its different because the real native Alifuru people of ceram knows more about this legendary Orang Bati. Richard Terry did not ask the Alifuru people in the jungle about the legend. The Alifuru people of Ceram knows the different between the lengandary Orang Bati and a giant flying fox or a giant bat. Because the people in Ceram eats the giant flying fox so thats why it can not be the lengendary Orang Bati. The native Alifuru people from Ceram respect the legendary Orang Bati. You can not find the Orang Bati in caves where bats hanging out or at day light. The real Orang Bati only fly at night. The legendary Orang Bati is a mysterious creture that lives in Ceram. I know about this because my grandfather is from Ceram and he is from old Alifuru culture. 

I'm not impressed with Richard Terry documentary about the legendary Orang Bati. The real native Alifuru people laugh about Richard Terry documentary legendary Orang Bati. Because he's going the wrong way to find the legandary Orang Bati.
