The "manananggal" is a mythical creature of the Philippines. It resembles a Western vampire, as an evil, man-eating bat or shape-shifting witch. The myth of the manananggal is popular in the Visayan region of the Philippines, especially in the western provinces of Capiz, Iloilo, and Antique. Folklore of similar creatures can be found in the neighbouring nations of Indonesia and Malaysia. There are varying accounts of the features of a manananggal, but one feature stands out among the rest,
many say it looks like a giant bat just like this one.
