In the Philippine Mythology, The mantahungal is the evil beast that was known by the Tagbanuas to rip a person to shreds.
This legendary monster has both the body and the sound of a cow, but is hornless. It has a shaggy coat of hair, and a gaping, horrifying mouth, with a large pair of tusk-like fangs. It is believed that this creature lives in thick forest patches on top of mountainous areas avoiding human beings. Bloody encounters do result after a meeting between a mantahungal and a human being since the creature is known to rip a viclim to pieces with its fangs.
