Region of origin: The Philippines

A ghoul-like buso, or malevolent spirit, the tigbanuá live as packs in dark caves or jungles and wait for a corpse to be freshly buried before digging it up and consuming it, leaving only the skeleton which they discard. They can be aggressive towards the living, but are said to be easily fooled and are also scared off by dogs. Their long, flexible necks are used to bend their head back and see behind them.
