    1. Speaking of Philippines they forgot the Philippine version of the Bigfoot known as
      kapre: in the Visayan dialect) is a Philippine mythical creature that could be characterized as a tree demon, but with more human characteristics. It is described as being a tall (7 to 9 ft), brown, hairy male with a beard. Kapres are normally described as smoking a big tobacco pipe, whose strong smell would attract human attention. The term kapre comes from the Arabic "kaffir" meaning a non-believer in Islam. The early Arabs and the Moors used it to refer to the non-Muslim Dravidians who were dark-skinned. The term was later brought to the Philippines by the Spanish who had previous contact with the Moors. Some historians speculate that the legend was propagated by the Spanish to prevent Filipinos from assisting any escaped African slaves. The kapre may also be the Philippines' version of the bigfoot.

  8. Isn't ironic that there are so many names for these creatures? Ya different countries have names for the easter bunny and santana clause. But people don't claim to see them every month of the year.

  16. this is missing the midnight whistler, Cherokee devil, and the gray howler. Me and some friends invented the name after we encountered it. It's very grey and it whistles, howls, yells, growls, breaks branches, throws rocks at PEOPLE, just the whole works. It's the most violent animal i ever encountered. One time I even put two shots at it with my revolver when I was out in the woods because it got WAY TOO CLOSE. If you want to get close and personal I suggest you come to Schuylkill county, Pennsylvania. Just make sure you bring protection from the gray howler and the off the gridders.

  17. I was curious about Boogers, so I hiked way back into the woods & stripped my mind of all irrelevant thoughts. I thought of a very bright light & out of it emerged an enormous male alpharangutan with 6 or 7 smaller female skunk apes of which most appeared to be quite pregnant.
    I ignored the females & focused only on the male while concentrating deeply on the question, "As a species, What do you call yourself ?".
    Without even moving his lips, and in a deep voice like James Earl Jones', He replied "Bush Pimp" and immediately one of the females followed up with "Hey there hairless,You lookin' for a date?". I checked my wallet & asked if she took plastic?
    It was at that point that the gargantuan odor wookie hit me w/some sort of earth shaking infrasound combined w/a hellacious, bellowing squatch fart that melted the inner walls of my nostrils.
    When I awoke, they had vanished leaving me dumfounded, smell blind & permanently deaf in one ear. I can no longer smell anything at all, and I'll never listen to Vanilla Ice in stereo ever again. But worst of all, if I hadn't have spent all my $$ on Flava Flave Tickets I would have got to "Wet my Wookie".....
