In the folklore of the Philippines, vampirelike demon, turning into a newborn baby, crying in the jungle to attract travelers.

Usually he looks like an old dwarf with a wrinkled skin, a long beard and mustache, a flat nose and eyes the size of a large coin. It becomes an unborn child killed as a result of aborted pregnancies or nenalezeny or (after the arrival of Christianity in the Philippines) who died before baptism, or whose mother died before giving birth and was buried, which caused him "to be born in the land."

Able to fly over the forest, turning into a black bird.
