Here's a rather unusual cryptid, in that it does not occur in the main cryptozoological dictionaries. It is the Santu Saki. And just what, I hear you ask, is that? It is a creature in Malaysian belief that is supposed to be half human and half animal. Humans are believed to feature in its diet. Hunter Henri Van Heerden claimed he was attacked by two of them near Kuala Lumpur in 1967. Before he could discharge his gun at them, they jumped on him, but he managed to get back into his vehicle. I would welcome further information about this cryptid.
