The Tikbalang Human-Horse
Tikbalang nests in the forests of the Philippines, and is said that it would astray a traveler's way, making it go back to the same place over and over again. The Tikbalang's spell can be undone by turning your shirt inside-out or saying "padaan po or tabi po" meaning excuse me may I pass.
According to people who witnessed the so called monstrous "Tikbalang". It smokes huge tobacco and eats leaves from 5-storey trees; and is said to be taking beautiful teenagers who pass by his home. They most likely live near rivers and humongous trees.
When it rains in a sunny day, people here in the Philippines would say "There are Tikbalangs getting married".
You can tame a Tikbalang when you snatch one of its golden hair, there are only 3 of them; so break-a-leg! Once you get the golden hair, you get to ask anything you want the Tikbalang to do.
