The Orang Pendek is a cryptid humanoid of Indonesia.
A large unidentified lagomorph, seen on July 26th by H. Harrison. It was observed - and nearly stepped on - by the witness pn Mount Laurel, near Mammoth Lakes, California. It was about the size of a cocker spaniel and silvery blue in color. There had been earlier reports of mountaineers hallucinating such creatures.
This legend sounds like the memory of an extraterrestrial visit in former times. The tendency of the animals to turn white could have been reaction to radioactive or other elements. Timbavati is famous for producing white lions.
