Supposedly, another local name for Philippines's giant type of Sasquatch, or mysterious primate, this time from the Eastern Samar region.
It has been suggested this creature might be a descendant of, related to, or even actually a Gigantopithecus, the largest primate that ever walked the Earth which went extinct 500,000 years ago.
This alleged cryptid is also known as Orang Gadang (Sumatra) and Waray-Waray (Philippines).
They are said to stand between 7½ and 12 feet tall — some reports describe slightly taller specimens — and to be covered with bushy dark hair.
Track history seems to point to a non divergent bulbous big toe, and the creatures are believed to be omnivorous. Sightings have been reported for centuries on the forests of Sumatra, the Philippines, and Malaya, a region rife with stories, hints and rumors of at least 3 different kinds of primitive hominids.
