In our country the Philippines, there is a creature called manananggal.
She is a woman that can seperate her body in half through the waistline and flies at night with her upper body (and leaves the other half in a hidden place), looking for pregnant women to feed on or sometimes children. It is said that the only way to kill a manananggal is to put salt on her lower body, so that she can't re-connect with it anymore. When the sun comes up and when the creature still can't return to her body, she gets burned by the sunlight.
Even today, there are some people who have encountered a manananggal, however, none of them have sufficient evidence.
-hands you a cookie- I have had a fascination with the Kelpie for about a decade now. cat_3nodding
Ive just recently stumbled over it while doing a research paper, but i find it fasicinating, it's a very mysterious and powerful creature. I just read a fictional book that puts a twist of the legend of the kelpies, it was very good.
