Alan…The Cryptid?

I enjoy my daily forays into the forest. Even though I may be searching for Bigfoot, I like to learn everything about what I may find out there, a certain tree, a stone wall, birds, and even any strange cryptids that could be lurking.

I thought I knew all the cryptids who call the forest their home but it looks like I overlooked one, and her name is Alan. That’s right Alan.

Alan is a cryptid that everyone agrees calls the forests of the Philippines home, but Information on its description varies extensively. Some information I found said they are only female and other sources say they are both. They are a mythical, flying humanoid. They have long tongues, feathered necks, scales on part of their limbs, wings, and their toes and fingers are reversed. Their face is described in one tale as female and in another as having a wrinkled bird like face.

Their diets are also described differently depending on what site you read. Some say they eat only humans that are alive, but strangely dead ones they give gifts too.

And Wikipedia describes them as eating, (if you’re eating you may want to finish before I go on, go ahead I’ll wait)……………..

Okay the great and powerful wiki states that they eat (gulp) drops of menstrual blood, miscarried fetuses, (I warned you) and other reproductive waste (wth?) Still with me? I know that part was a little rough. I think this picture best suits them after that paragraph. Not the beautiful harpies depicted above.

I have also read that instead of eating, they take the reproductive waste and create a human from one that will have supernatural abilities.

This is definitely an interesting cryptid to continue to research as there are so many different theories on what they could be. Let me know if you have any information on them you’d like to share.

Overall I have to say I’m glad they reside in the Philippines and not New England, since I don’t know whether they want to eat us or grow us. I’ll take my chances with Bigfoot, Puckwudgies and Thunderbirds thank you…
